I had 4 out of 5 numbers without the Powerball for the Saturday night drawing.

I won $100 but lost $300 million.

Think of the haters in your life as sandpaper; they’ll scratch you up time and time again but in the end you’re polished, smooth, and spotless..while they end up useless

Power Balls sounds like something a man would love to have...

Thank you for reminding me that I need to get tickets on the way home.

$100 is $100, but yeah, not 300 million. Still, it's several tanks of gas. Or a nice dinner out. I just won $10 on a Crossword scratch ticket. That's only enough to buy more tickets!

You did better than me. I didn't win anything. Haven't the last 2 times I played. Saturday is my birthday so maybe I'll win something this week.

Congrats on your win!

I think...therefore, I'm single.

It is what it is.

-$10 for the damn powerball!

But that's just a lot of water
Underneath a bridge I burned
And there's no use in backtracking
Around corners I have turned
