I Never Thought I'd See My Fingers Type This

I'm DONE with the lottery!

Okay. Not permanently, of course. That's not gonna happen. But lately I've been on a not-winning streak. Uh huh. Mrs. Hillbilly Mom is a loser! Oh, sure, every now and then I win $5 here and there. Or maybe $15. But I haven't had a big win in THREE WEEKS!!! That is unacceptable!

Here's my last good one.

That was on March 15th. Seems like forever ago.

I don't even like that ticket! It's been around since last year. It's a double-sized one that you can't get out of the machines. It costs $20. I'd been buying the fives, but something kept telling me to get this ticket at the Casey's across the moat from the Gas Station Chicken Store. I resisted the urge for about 4 days, and then switched up and bought this on March 15th. Looks like the luck of the Irish was with me two days before St. Pat's.

My lucky hunch seems to be on the fritz lately. I don't feel compelled to go to any certain store, or buy any specific ticket. I just buy whatever. And that hasn't been working out. So I'm not spending my hard-not-lost casino bankroll on tickets until after my next casino trip. Which is on the horizon at the end of the week, anyway.

Maybe a little re-calibrating of my luck is just what Even Steven ordered.

You know why you don't like that ticket? Take a close look at all the clover leafs. They're NOT four leaf clovers, they're only three leaf and not so lucky.
Perhaps Even Steven is girding up his loins for the next big winning run. Or maybe he just needs a break like the rest of us, time to sit back and put his feet up.

Ooh! I did NOT notice that! Must have been a subliminal realization of this trick that put me off that ticket. I like the image of Even Steven with his feet up. I'd like to think he has something in store for me, but then again, he might be evening out those two casino wins I had in the last couple months.
