Do you buy lottery tickets?
So much of what we want to do as individuals relative to pursuing our dreams requires money. As a society we often joke about what we will do after "we've won the lottery"
I wonder if this mentality is unique to America and Americans.
I haven't won anything for over 18 years, but I can still wish for it too happen again. Of course that means I would have to actually go out and play a number. I did that 3 weeks ago, put the number away somewhere for safe keeping, and can't remember where that 'Safe keeping Place' is. But, I am sure at some point I will find the ticket, and if it won, I will know then. What I really want to win, and I do submit too often, and I know it is far fetched, is 'Publishing Clearing House.' I won't hold my breath though, waiting. Just a Dream. But it would be exciting to have the 'Crew' Show up at my door, with that check. Actually, they do owe me, cause I am always buying something from them. It's fun anticipating the WIN!
I am in a group here at work. We have been playing for about 8 months. We would like to win!!
I think its nice to dream and hey why not dream big!
I rarely do...and have never been the type to do so. Of the times rrecently that I have, obviously I have not won anything more than $5.
I tell myself that it will be so much more satisfying to make my dream a reality on my own rather than having it land at my feet.
As for whether it is more a North american mentality, I have no idea
