I found 45¢ on a couch cushion after our department Tea (yes, where I work has a a collegial tea ritual to get undergrads, grads, and faculty in the same place at one time--it's nice). I gave the 45 ¢ to a prof who helped me move a couch back to where it belonged. She said she was going to give the money to her son who was starting a collection of coins to amass enough to buy a two storied house in the Bay Area, California. Much later in the day, after talking to my father, I found a quarter placed just before my apartment door. I have obviously wasted a day working when I should have been gold prospecting up in the hills.
I didn't even play the Lotto, understanding the rudiments of math.
