For my non-American friends, there was a big lottery drawing here a few days ago, called Powerball, with a top prize of 587 million dollars. (Sheee-it!) The last time the prize grew so large, Mr. Geoviki bought us one ticket for the drawing. Only one, of course, because the difference in the odds goes up the most between 0 tickets and 1, and not so much after that. We've had too much math between us, clearly.

And then we spent the time until the drawing hoping we wouldn't win. We just decided that the negatives outweighed the positives: it would ruin our kids' motivation, it would draw all kinds of remote relatives into our lives asking for a handout, we couldn't decide what we'd do with the money anyway...

This time, we deliberately didn't buy any tickets. I think that says a lot about how satisfied we are with our financial life right now. Not that we're rolling in it, or anything, but that we're happy with what we have.

Powerball Prize: $587,000,000.
Ticket cost: $1.
Contentment with our current lot in life: priceless
