There’s another big Powerball jackpot looming on Wednesday — $235 million — so I’ll be buying a ticket along with every other optimist out there.
Except I’m not so optimistic this time.
I’ve seen who wins the lottery, and it’s not people who live in Manhattan. The system maybe random, but let’s face it –
In this case ‘random’ appears to like small town stories. I’ve decided I need to take a train out of town and buy my ticket to have any kind of chance.
So, where should I go before Wednesday’s drawing? Remember –
We’re looking for local color that attracts GREEN.

Please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, pretty please with sugar on top…
Pick my numbers in the Power Ball lottery drawing tonight.
I actually played today. Heck, everybody played today… because the jackpot is so freakin’ huge.
But the danger in my playing is that I think I will actually win.
I think I can. I think I can. I think I will.
I wasn’t the big winner in the Fancy Farm Picnic car raffle.
The chances were slim, I know. But anytime I enter a raffle or play the lottery, I seriously think I am going to win.
I’ve read the odds on the Mega Millions drawing. It’s some insane figure like 1 in 175,711,536. And yet, on the extremely rare occasions I buy a lottery ticket — or a raffle ticket for the Fancy Farm Picnic, where the odds are a wee bit better…
I really think I’m gonna win.
Does everyone who plays the lottery feel such certainty when they lay their money on the counter? They’re investing — and losing — funds on a more regular basis, so maybe not.
But when the lottery says “you can’t win if you don’t play”…
I expect to win.
