When I was a kid, my mom and I used to watch a lot of old movie musicals. There was one we used to watch at Christmas-time titled The Lemon Drop Kid. In one of his musical numbers, the male and female lead sing a song called "It Doesn't Cost A Dime To Dream", wherein they fantasize about how they would spend all their money if they ever someday became rich.
The lyrics still stick in my head even though it's been decades since I've seen this movie. They go something like this:
We'll have a maid
Who has a maid
Who has a maid to serve the two maids lemonade
We will spend our dough
Just like H2O
'Cause it doesn't cost a dime to dream
I'm sure we've all played this game. Every time Powerball gets huge we we put an office pool together and buy tickets. I sometimes even buy one for myself - never more than one,though. I know that buying $300 worth of lottery tickets when 46 million other people are playing doesn't really better your odds.
