New Thing #172: Lucky Me?

Based on something that happened today to facilitate tomorrow's New Thing, my big boss, E, has decided I'm lucky. So lucky that he gave me some cash today and told me to buy a Lotto ticket. If it wins, as he's sure it will, we split the money. We shook on it, then he had to draw a diagram of what a Lotto ticket looks like and show me what to do because I'd never played Lotto before. I've never purchased a Lottery ticket, scratcher or any bodega-dispensed gambling docket of any kind. I've played in them, but always had a proxy do the buying. So tonight I bought a Lotto ticket. The diagram helped.
