This Sukkot, I am NOT playing the lottery

14 0 0

I take the ticket out of my wallet and scan it. Beep beep, the device is making the typical noise and then it shows a message on the display screen.

“Sorry, you are not a winner”.


I crumble the ticket and throw it in the nearest trash can.

I don’t play the lottery often. But every time I do, I end up chiding myself for it. Why did I just waste 2 dollars? Did I really believe I am going to win? And what are the chances anyways – slim to none!

There is something appealing about the idea of free money.

Actually, free anything.

Free. Give it to me. I don’t need to work for it, no efforts required. Free!
