Happy happy joy joy!

Jennifer Lopez's mother won a $2.4 million jackpot while playing $1 slots in Atlantic City last weekend.

Because that family hasn't gotten lucky enough already.

My version of a lucky day is if Mrs. Green and I make it through without being in an automobile accident, or getting diagnosed with some horrible ailment, or experiencing some bizarre gob of symptoms that can't be diagnosed, or losing a job, or having the upstairs neighbor's hot water tank burst and flood us, or having a wallet stolen, or having a family member die, or finding out that an employer fucked up taxable income calculations for some prior year that now requires filing a modified return and paying tax and interest, etc. Or even that not *too* many things like that happen all at once. That's an unusually good day for the Green family. For the Lopez family, it's winning a few extra million playing the slots.

Some days it's pretty fucking difficult keeping my sunny and cheerful disposition.

That's okay, we love you anyway. :)

It just proves the world isn't fair.

Anyway you've got something J Lo and her family don't - a blog.

Sorry, that probably just made things worse.

You're a role model for us all, Mr. Green.

Did Ms. Green allow you to post this blog? Were you sufficiently respectful to her today?

I'm not wearing any underpants.

Thanks, correct, aw shucks, absolutely not, and me neither.
