So, yup, we won the lottery! Not just a figure of speech about how we just moved to Paradise and all.... I mean it literally. We won $1,600 in the Virgin Islands Lottery about a month ago.
(if you are wondering how we will ever be able to spend it, please see Ken's previous entries regarding the pool;))
Winning the local lottery made me curious about it, so here is the deal:
Fact: The lottery tickets here are strange.
I used to give Ken a hard time about buying the sheets of stamp-like lottery tickets that are sold all over the island. There are some pretty sketchy dealers loitering all over at stores, street corners, parking lots, etc. selling these wierd lotto tix, strung up on clothes lines. We bought our winning ticket from a woman outside of the auto parts store.
I figured the drawing had to be rigged or something, seemed kind of sketchy.
