We are not the winners. Sigh. I know that the odds were infinitesimal that we would win the Mega Millions Jackpot. I even know the awful stories of the downward spiral lottery winners lives often take after a big win. Ahh, but surely if we had beaten the odds enough to win, we would have also been able to navigate the potential pitfalls of sudden, staggering wealth with ease. Unfortunately we don’t get to take that theory for a test drive.
Nor do we get to test drive anything else with four wheels!
