  1. In the 15 years that we’ve been buying tickets together we’ve probably won around $300.

    I still believe I have a chance.

  2. I buy a lotto ticket once in a while, but I don’t expect to win. For me it’s mostly cheap entertainment. Jody won I think it was $3700 once and gave me $1000. I’d say over the years, considering that $1000, I’ve broken even.

  3. I’m astounded that you think I can remember something from 1990?
    I forgot what I had for lunch.

    I remember that you bought me a turntable that I was saving up for, and I still have it.
    Thanks once again!

    I remember that I was working at Sam’s at the time.
    I remember we were all living on Delaware.

    However that’s about the extent of my memory.
    I seem to remember you gave some to your parents as well, and I think I believed it was in the $5000 territory, but I can’t actually remember.


  4. I can tell you exactly how much it was. Jody has the worst memory of anyone I know.

    It’s was $3757. I remember, because for several years I told just about everyone I know the story how we got 5 out of 6 numbers in the lotto thinking we’d won at least $100,000, but by the time we got to the store, we talked ourselves down to $10,000. By the time we found out the actual amount, the thrill was gone. But we knew we had food and rent for the next little while.

    Jody gave me $1000. He bought Scott a turntable. He spent about $150 on booze, which took forever to drink, and most of it sucked. We all then went to some ’50s-themed restaurant in the Eaton’s Centre mall, whatever it’s called, and ordered expensive hamburgers and fries, which seemed like a stupid waste of money (that was the consensus). And then about 6 weeks later, Jody spent the rest of the money moving back to Nova Scotia.

    I guess I’m the only one who hasn’t gone senile since then. I have no problem remembering any of it.
