I won the lottery!!!



When we flew back from shooting the wedding in Santa Barbara last year, we flew through Seattle. There was a Washington Lottery scratchers machine next to our gate. I thought, "Hmmm, that's silly. There's no way to get paid if you win. You must have to send in winning ticket to redeem them. But what if you only won a buck. Haha, that'd be silly. You'd be spending a dollar on a ticket, then spending $.44 on a stamp to get a dollar. So in the end you'd be out the cost of a stamp. And the Washington Lottery would get your dollar, but they'd have to spend $X.xx to print and mail a check for a dollar, so they'd lose money too!"


Yes, I have huge involved conversations with myself in my head. Anyway, I bought one. And I won a dollar. I mean...lost forty-four cents. And made the Washington Lottery burn some money too. 'Cause that's how I roll.
