When I first worked at the New York Post, one of my jobs was to collect lottery tickets from virtually everyone in the newsroom and bring them to the candy store to enter them into the weekly drawing (“You’ve gotta be in it to win it,” was the motto). I started playing the lottery, too, although I admitted to the office manager that I didn’t think I would ever win.
“If you did win, what would you do?” she asked, and I recited the usual list – fancy vacations, a nice apartment, etc.
