Why yes, I play the lottery

Paul posted the other day about playing the lottery and the super-huge-mega jackpot right now. I don’t do it often, but when the jackpot has risen to these heights before, I’ve bought myself tickets. It’s for a serious cause, though.
I was driving past the Baltimore Aquarium with my fiancee (we’re getting married in Pennsylvania) and I asked her, “can we get married in one of the fish tanks in the Baltimore Aquarium?”
“No,” she said.
“Why not?”
“It’d be expensive,” she said.
“Can we get married in one of the tanks if I win the lottery?”
“Yes, but not in one of the shark tanks.”
And so, I’m not playing the lottery for some off chance or fleeting hope. I seriously want to get married in a huge underwater tank with scuba tuxedos and everything. Is that too much to ask?
By the way, I lost over the weekend.

    I say that “I did it to win an argument with my parnter” is a giant trump card against criticism. Things which would ordinarily be bad ideas become entirely understandable in these kinds of situations.

    You know, WH, I may just have to break my “no lottery tickets” policy. If I win I’ll pay for your wedding in the fish tank!
