$1 million to be exact.
Ahsan said she wasn’t even planning on buying a ticket that day but thought her daughter’s signal was a good omen. I wish I trusted my daughter’s sticky fingers that much.
After all, $1 million equals approximately 4 million diapers! Or 28,500 Rock ‘N Roll Elmos! Or 1000 Bugaboo strollers!
Actually, Ahsan (a resident of Queens, New York) will receive her winnings in yearly installments of $31,152 until 2031. Which, according to my calculations… barely covers a year at a top-of-the-line Manhattan preschool!
It takes raising a kid in NYC to make $1 million not sound like much.
Did you know that the cost of my daughter’s preschool next year is twice as much as what I paid for one year of college?
Mazzy better start brushing up on her clairvoyant skills and point out some winning lottery tickets or else she’s gonna force us straight out of Manhattan.
Either that or I’ll borrow Anaya for a day.
Plant her in a corner bodega in front of the scratch-offs, feed her stories of expensive three bedroom apartments, private education and the cost of shopping at our local Whole Foods, and then let her do her thing.
Each ticket costs around 4 diapers, so… even if Anaya doesn’t succeed, at least I’ll have further motivation to potty train.
