Pig Alert! Lottery Fever?

Hi everyone! I'm not a big fan of the lottery but that last $380 million one did get my attention! Of course not long enough to actually buy a ticket... but I did hear about it on the radio! While I was standing in line at the store the other day I couldn't help but notice a little pink piggy in the lottery machine...
Oh yea baby, could this be an omen???
So I scratched...
Woo Hoo I matched!
...wait a minute, I won a free ticket. So back to the store I go...
And I scratch some more...
Bummer. 
This my friends is why I don't play the lottery too often.
I'm hoping I have better luck on the Super Bowl Pool at work!
Happy Pink Saturday:@)

1/15/11-I'm editing this post to participate in Saturday Centus,
how funny the two topics overlapped! The prompt this week is:

The lottery ticket...
Promises hope and the American dream,
But losing only makes me want to scream!
The end:@)

  2. Best of luck!

    The trouble with big prizes is the more the money, the more who play so your chances go down. But hey! You never know - you MIGHT win. :)

  7. I remember one year I bought a lottery ticket (scratch off) and won. I didn't scratch off the amount, but instead put the ticket in a box and wrapped it up as a Christmas gift to my husband. I figured it would be so fun to let him see the amount. It wasn't fun for me though to wait for Christmas. I had a dream the house burnt down and the gifts with it.......it was a huge winner. Well, in reality, it was for $2.00, but it was fun for awhile.....Happy Pink Saturday, Char

  10. I used to buy the scratch offs like this. Finally gave up as I could never win. However, for Christmas, someone gave me ten. I actually won $20 on one of them. It does not happen much. I have not seen these with the little pig.

  15. Everyone in our department plays when the jackpot is big enough to promise early retirement. Did you use Pudge to scratch it off?

    ReplyDelete
  16. Well, wishing you great luck in the pool!

  17. That last jackpot got my attention too but I didn't make it to the store in time to buy any tickets! One of the winners was from my state though. Wrong side of the mountains though so I guess I wouldn't have won anyway! Better luck next time you play the Pink Pig! Happy Pink Saturday!

  18. I hear ya! I rarely buy lottery tickets cuz I have the worst luck!!! However, that Hog Heaven would certainly be a HUGE temptation!

    I hope you have a great PS and a wonderful weekend!! dana

  19. SUPER cute Pink Saturday post! I'm a first-timer, looking forward to seeing more of your pink! :)

  20. LOL....I will win the lottery when pink pigs fly!

  21. Ha! Nope, we don't play either. However, my step-dad was one of 7 people who shared an 8.8 million jackpot a few years ago. His generosity to our family completely changed our life! The money's all gone now but we are all in much better financial situations having spent it wisely...and it was fun while it lasted! :)

    HaPpY pInK sAtUrDaY!

  26. Bummer..no big winning.. It's hard to beat the odds against us..but fun to try once in awhile.

    ReplyDelete
  27. OOOOOOH! I am sorry you didn't win. You have my kind of luck. Bob and I DID purchase tickets for the "big draw". We also registered at our bank for a "customer appreciation" prize. Guess which one we won!!
    We enter two drawings for the week and won a bag promotional items. At least when it rains, I will not get a soaking. I will be a walking advertisement.
    We figure we made a donation to the state "Hope Scholarship Fund".
    Better luck next time?

    Hugs, Ginger

  28. Oh bummer! I figured if you had won, you would have sent all of us bloggy friends a plane ticket to the big party you were hosting on some remote tropical island. I guess I will unpack my bag! Those poor cute cabana boys are going to be so disappointed! LOL :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. I thought you were announcing that you had won the big one! Well winning a ticket is better than nothing. I actually thought about buying a ticket for the big one, but the lines were rediculous.

  30. Pig Alert!!!! Good One!!! At least you got to Scratch/Rub a Pigs Belly....Twice! Cute post!! Happy Pink Saturday!

  33. Oh I always lose because I never play.

  34. I would have been drawn in too by the omen! hehe
    a perfect SC, so well done ... and good luck with the S B Pool :o)

  35. Great Centus. And how could you NOT buy that ticket? This was a really fun post. Kat

  36. My son bought a lottery ticket a few months ago, and lo and behold, he had a winner! He just knew he had won a million dollars, so he rushed to Safeway to claim his prize. Like you, his prize was another ticket. Bummer is right!!

  37. I love it when people take their theme seriously. If you have a blog with a pig as your mascot or symbol you simply must buy that lottery ticket with the picture of the piggys on it, and do exactly as you have done and photograph the process... (I know... we're not supposed to have illustrations with these writing exercises...but it fits in with your theme!!)
    Great post!
    Best wishes,

  39. Great compact post! You made powerful use of so few words. Kudos..........cj

  40. I buy about 4 tickets a year...only the dollar ones. If I win (the most ever being $2) I turn it back into lottery tickets. You just reminded me that I have 2 to scratch off in my purse!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I would have bought that ticket too! Of course I am a compulsive gambler so I would have done it regardless. LOL! Loved your Centus! Great job!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I loved your take on the centus!

  43. I'm enjoying your cute piggy post and blog. Thanks for the smiles.

  44. Hilarious that the topics matched for you this week! Like your centus, sorry about your scratching blues...

    ReplyDelete
  45. Hi Lynn, I was expecting great news here. Sigh. I almost never but those things. I have seen my friends win though. Not me. Besides, we have a blessed LIFE, so who needs the lottery. Everyone!! Ha! The piggy should have been lucky and I love your 'poem'

    Hugs, Jeanne
