When I go to play my tickets, at 49 years old I am by far the youngest person there.
I am 66 years old and play Pick 3 and Pick 4 FOR FUN. It is one of the few things left in my life that I truly enjoy.
The other reason I believe most of us old folks play is HOPE.
Nobody needs us or wants to be around us anymore, and
like the Pink Floyd song says, "No one cares if you live or die."
So, just the hope of winning some cash now and then,
and the thrill of an occasional hit gives US HOPE.
To all cigarette smokers and beer drinkers that look disdainfully
at me when I purchase my tickets, I normally look at them and say,
"At least I get some money back now and then.
When was the last time you got any money back from your cigarettes or beer?"
