Tommy: My lottery ticket failed me again. Say goodbye to my dream of becoming a millionaire.
Amada: Stop daydreaming. If you really want to be a millionaire, you need to take a more down-to-earth approach. Buying lottery tickets is not practical, you know.
Tommy: But there's always a chance to win the jackpot!
Amada: You only have a one in a million chance to win the jackpot. In my opinion, buying lottery tickets is just like pouring money down the drain!
Tommy: Hmm, you're right. I'll start saving the money instead of buying lotto tickets. At least I'll be one tiny step closer to becoming a millionaire.
