"I had an ex that used to play lottery scratch cards every week. Most weeks she lost. Some weeks she won a few bucks. It got me thinking about the whole lottery thing - getting your hopes high, dreaming, escaping, and then usually being let down.
This happens to me on a daily basis WITHOUT the lottery's help, so I find the whole thing funny. I didn't need the lottery messing with my life - I'm alright with it the way it is. So as an experiment, I started buying scratch cards and not scratching them. It made my ex a little crazy. And wen I show other people, it makes them a little crazy. I think I'm onto something here."
