My Worst Money Nightmare

When lottery jackpots are over $100 million, I like to buy one or two tickets on a chance to win. For sentimental reason, I typically play one set of numbers related to important dates for our family.

My worst money nightmare is having my numbers win, when I haven't purchased a ticket.

Realistically, I shouldn't have to worry about this nightmare coming true. As noted in A Very, Very, Bad Retirement Plan, the odds of winning are 1 in 175,711,536, meaning my nightmare would occur once in 1,689,000 years, statistically speaking:-)
