It's pretty funny. We bought a new car three years ago and my son asked if we had won the lottery (no we hadn't). I told no, but now we have a car payment. Then last year we bought another new car and he asked 'now did you win the lottery?' (no we didn't) and I told him 'no, but now we have two car payments'.

I didn't even know that lottery winners don't have to be named; but if it turns out the winner is one of my relatives and he doesn't tell me, I will not be thrilled about it. I don't care if the world knows who won, but if a blood relative won I really want to know about - especially if it's that cousin that keeps trying to borrow $60 - if that cheapskate won the lottery he can pay me the $300 he owes me now!
