Paying my Idiot Tax
Just a quick (and silly) update.
Stopped for gas on the way home from work and picked up one of these:
I could win $2,000 a week for life! No more having to write books! Just kidding, folks. In the unlikely event that I win the lottery, scratch card, or an unknown rich uncle dies (or aunt, I don’t discriminate), I promise you that I’ll still be writing the Artifice series. Well, let’s start scratching this baby and see if I just wasted four dollars. The card’s divided into five main games, plus a little bonus game. We need to match three of a kind on each of the main games. Let’s scratch off number one and see how we do:

Another dud. Let’s try the last main game:
Success! Looks like I’m up four dollars at this point! Let’s see if we can pull off a hat trick with the bonus game:
No such luck. Well, at least I can afford to buy another one of these silly things without feeling guilty.
Well, that’s it folks. Hope it gave you a fun diversion for a few minutes.
