Can you do that?

    So I’m at 7-Eleven getting a Traverse City cherry vanilla cappuccino and assorted sport drinks, and decide to throw a dollar in the street on a lottery ticket. I only buy them about once a month so I never know which drawing is when, and just asked for an easy pick for tonight’s drawing.

    The clerk asks if I want the Mega Millions or the Classic Lotto 47, because the Mega Millions drawing was last night.

    Why would I ask to buy a ticket for last night’s drawing?

    An easy pick, anyway. I could see checking the numbers first, then asking for a ticket with THOSE numbers on it. But somehow, I don’t think the machine would have let her do that.
