Lottery TIckets

I started buying lottery tickets from time to time a few months after Margaret's birth. You see, we started trying for a second child the old fashioned way right away on the slim, slim hope that we wouldn't need to do IVF again and I therefore might be able to breastfeed Margaret a bit longer. I bought the lottery tickets so I could say "I have a better chance of winning the lottery" to all those folks who feel like prognosticating on my chances for success and still feel that I was being truthful. "Buying a lottery ticket" became my internal euphemism for unassisted reproductive attempts.
