TBWCYL Day 184 - Lucky my Ass!!!

So The Book said that today my lucky number was 12 and I should use that. I had to work on Friday so I went in and left about 3. We were going to a pool party and Diana and I decided to stop in at a gas station and buy some beer. I saw the Pick 3 Lottery Tickets and decided to test if 12 really was my lucky number.

For those not familiar with the Pick 3 Lottery ticket, you choose any 3 single digit numbers and can choose whether you want them to be in exact or any order. I chose any but all of my lotto numbers summed up to 12. Also, they have an additional feature called Sum It Up which takes the sum of the three numbers even if you combination doesn't work, if the three winning numbers adds up to your sum, than you can still win. I went for this too and had a total of 4 different Sum It Up totals that were all 12.

So, $8 and a 12 pack of Dos Equis and we were off. The party started at 3 and we got there a little late. Here are the results.

I drank a 12 pack of beer, or 9 bottles and at least 3 cups. While playing pool volleyball, the ball went out and I jumped out to get it. In doing so, I slipped on the grass and twisted my ankle. That 12 wasn't very pleasant.

I checked my lottery numbers this morning and none of my numbers hit. The Sum It Up was 13.
The number 12 sucks.

On a positive note, I have now officially crossed the halfway point on The Book. Only 181 more days to go. Whoohoo!!!

That is all,

Yet more proof that your lottery karma blows.

Bad luck, old chum.

GI: Again, I am sorry you didn't win the lottery with the numbers I gave you. Let it go!

Erin: I am going to take a much needed vacation from blogging, say a week, then I am probably going to do something stupid, like a blog an hour program. Ha!
