Well, that’s a lot of money

Yesterday I was driving through downtown Denver and noticed the lottery billboard.

I assume the sign for the Mega Millions jackpot can’t show anything higher than $999 million dollars– sure enough, when I checked the news in the evening I found that the jackpot had risen to a record-breaking $1.6 billion dollars.

I saw the winning numbers and couldn’t help but notice they definitely weren’t the numbers I would have picked. So, I guess I won’t be buying any tickets, and that means I also won’t be an instant billionaire any time soon.
