A quick tale 161

Why not?

You tell yourself it doesn’t matter really. What’s a lottery after all? A few million quid. It would be nice to win, definitely. You can pay off the mortgage, retire early and buy a house in the countryside or something. Or if are really lucky, buy one even in the heart of the city. But let’s be honest. What chances do you really have of winning? Pitifully little. You tell yourself that as you put the ticket away to the bottom of a pile.

But then you remember all those success stories. About this couple that were neck deep in debt. And how one day they won the jackpot. You’ve heard tons of them before. You know it could never happen to you. But still, that evening when the numbers are being read out on the telly, you wish. Just for a moment. May be…

Here's to hope, allright... I always want to win even though I dont buy lottery tickets! :) I think even god would find that miracle difficult :D

PS. Nice to see a new QT from you after so long!

Hope for the best, prepare for the worst... Hoping is something we are experts at, its the latter that requires a little more practise!!

I am sure that most of those people who were in debt, got there by buying the tickets in the first place.

In any case, good luck.
