    Not a Balance In My Favor

     Once I won $33 and it cost me maybe $100 to do so. Not the way things are supposed to work.  I haven't bought a ticket in years.  Of course, you can't win that way can you?  Maybe if someone just went out, bought me a ticket and it won...I'd give them at...

    It depends on how much I win.. I know I would go shopping though. I know I wouldn't spend all of it on myself if it's a lot of money.
