I got lucky last night, but I didn’t realize it until I checked my lottery tickets this morning. Florida Lottery’s Mega Money game draws four numbers from a pool of 32, plus another number, the megaball, from a 32-number shoot. I got three numbers plus the megaball for a $351 payoff.

While I’m happy for the win (and I certainly could use the money), I can only wonder how my life would have changed if I had that one other number. The payoff would have been over $450K. What a twist of fate that would have been.
