I Want My 2 Bux!

How unlucky am I this week?
Guess I just can't wait for the year to be over!

After weeks with zero lottery hits, I finally matched the mega-ball number, only to discover my ticket missing from the place it should be! I musta done a mill things yesterday between driving all over town, store errands, n other stops. I had to replace a printer cartridge, make lots of copies, write letters, go through bill records, and had stuff all over the tables. I finished, put it all away, then started sorting what to put in the garbage for the following am pick-up, n finished loading barrels about 1am.

Then I grabbed a shower and rinsed out the dusty clothes I'd had on, after checking pockets. I don't remember putting the tix under the magnet where I always put 'em. I didn't realize the AWOL fluke factor until the re-run of the late news came on, n I heard the Mega-Mills numbers. Wow, I thought, my recently changed number matches on the ball spot! Cool, there's 2 Bux... hey, where is that tix...?

I finally said nevermind I neeed zzz's at 3am, then resumed the quest all morning, all for a lousy 2 bux! I went through the rubbish n mail pile I'd thrown away, the printer cartridge package, the copies, all the things I'd sorted n read, re-checked all pockets, n re-traced all places I'd been on the premises.

I remember who sold it to me, putting it in my designated back pocket, but don't remember taking it out, or putting it up in the "spot." I was interrupted with many calls during the day, n was pretty distracted through those conversations, during which times I could easily move stuff n not remember, because I'm focused on listening and reponding, not my movements, (I do putter alot).
All I can figure is, It fell out of the pocket at some point on the road somewhere. I can't believe I was so careless with it, to let it be lost. Of course I haven't lost a loser tix yet all year! I wanna cry over my 2 bux this week! Guaranteed losing a tix won't happen again...

Thank the Creator it wasn't matching all the numbers...
That woulda been meltdown time!

Snaggle- Two dollars or not, that just plain sucks! Sorry to hear about it. You've probably spent more than two bucks of your time just looking for it. Hope it surfaces for you!

Snaggle- If you did have all the matching numbers, you've got a lot of friends on the blog circuit who would have had a melt-down for you.
We'd all like to see you hit the "big one", if anyone deserves it, you do!
