WAITING FOR THE POWERBALL NUMBERS

  1. 10 minutes to 10pm
    I'm slightly excited and nervous.
  2. 9 minutes to 10pm
    Still slightly excited and nervous but now I'm bored.
  3. 2 minutes to 10pm
    I am watching The Mysteries of Laura on Netflix...
  4. It's now 10pm
    Little brother running up and down the stairs screaming "it's time for the pwoerball!!! The numbers!! It's time!!"
  5. Still 10pm
    I trek down the stairs to watch the numbers being announced.
  6. Numbers are being announced (in a dull, dry, non exciting matter I might add)
    None of my numbers are matching up exactly on either of my (receipts).
  7. My confidence bubble is slowly losing air.
    I'm not going to win 1.6 billion dollars
  8. Confidence bubble is re-flating
    Mom informs me the numbers to not have to be in the exact order.
  9. WHAT WERE THE NUMBERS AGAIN?!
    I'm so flustered.
  10. Rewind.
    I have one...two...matching numbers.
  11. THIS COULD BE IT!
    I WILL PAY OFF MY STUDENT LOANS IN RECORD TIMES WITH MY WINNINGS. And maybe I'll buy awesome workout clothes too? Or a fancy car? Travel. I would definitely travel. THE OPTIONS ARE ENDLESS. Travel.
  12. So apparently you need to have a matching powerball number to win almost any combination?
    UHG. Why must this be so difficult?
  13. None of my powerballs match.
    Can I quit? Maybe return my numbers?
  14. Good news though...
    Mother won $7
  15. Pretended to be excited
    ....that I didn't win anything. EVEN A DOLLAR WOULD HAVE BEEN NICE.
  16. Now what am I supposed to do?
    Hyped up on the adrenaline from thinking I actually had a shot at winning.
  17. Gnight
    😴
