FAMW: One in 176 Million

Actually, make that SEVEN in 176 million, which are the odds of yours truly not having to come in on Monday. This pertains to having broken down and purchasing seven tickets for the “Mega Millions” lottery, now worth 540 million dollars (at last count). As fortune would have it, we developed contingency plans back in December of 2009, so we will not be so easily swayed by someone else's ideas of what to do next.

And yet, just knowing how quickly our rich uncle -- Sam, maybe you know him -- could go through it, is this week's Friday Afternoon Moment of Whimsy. (By the way, if Uncle Sam won the jackpot, it would settle 1/250 of one percent of the national debt.)
