The numbers game

Kudos to the two lucky winners of the recent mammoth Mega Millions jackpot. One winner said she played the numbers of family birthdays, plus her personal lucky number. Now, why didn’t I think of that?

Actually, I think I have an even more sure-fire winning formula:

Count the number of words in this letter. Then divide by the number of Craigslist meetings that end up with someone not getting robbed, assaulted or worse. Multiply by the chances of NFL commissioner Roger Goodell forgoing his luxury seats and sitting in the snow at the upcoming Super Bowl in New Jersey. Add the number of inches that Miley Cyrus sticks her tongue out while performing. Subtract the number of Tea Partiers at an Obamacare rally. I guarantee the sum is the first number of a future Mega Millions drawing.

The date? I have no idea. Hey, I’m no psychic.
