I have a relative who kept saying, "If I win the lottery, I'll . . . " and so on and so on. She would give money to this, she would buy that, she would take us all on vacation to wherever. And finally, her grand-daughter, bored with hearing this, said, "Grandmother, if you put a dollar aside every time you said, 'If I win the lottery,' you'd have enough money to do all these things." And she probably would have.

I gave up believing in fairy godmothers. Any money I have in my old age I'll have to earn.
