So glad I asked this question and pleased to know I am not alone!
It must be a necessary thing though huh? I have never had a serial one but when I get on a good one I hate to lose it!

Are you saving and investing money? If so, do you know the Rule of 72? You'll have much better luck with that than winning the lottery, which will exact a much greater price in taxes and friends.
Today I am on a fixed income leaving little room for saving. I do know the Rule of 72! I graduated 1972 and Seniors rule. giggle + giggle :-) Kidding aside I don't know about it. I will seek it out. Thanks for the tip!!

Mm; yes, I do recall ones I cannot wait to get back to and from what I have read about that it is just an escape mechanism from somewhere in our life we do not want to be or just a great daydream!
