    On very rare occasions and very subtle, but who cares?

    Life is full of gambles, even without a financial attachment. Everytime you drive on the roadways you're gambling with potentials. Life is full of uncertain potentials, good and bad.

    Next time they give you the look, just look right back at them and say..."You gotta problem"?.....

      I don't have problems with people because they don't want to get on my wrong side in public.  I'm LOUD in public.  I'm tall, well built for a woman and keep myself fit, I don't think anyone young or old would want some woop as*.   I normally use a look, or silence and my look (that gives people chills).  I'm aware of my surroundings and people, but don't pay much attention to them unless they want to step into my world.  And I doubt that.

      As for you?  WHY do you care?   I'm hitting........okay I'm older .......... and still wear short skirts and shorts, like I care what people think?

      So relax and do what YOU want to do as long as it doesn't hurt anyone.   If you go through life not doing what you want because of what people think of you, you will never live your own life.

          Yes the people that don't gamble, My neighbor I tell her when I hit the lottery she goes I don't gamble. Lots of people don't but to each his own.  I love to gamble I really need to give it a break, Lol. That is what I like to do. People think that when people gamble they are irrisponsable I guess they can be if the over do it. If  I don't play I like to guess at it, sometimes those guesses are right. So I am always happy when someone wins. I read something last year people that play the lottery live longer. It is kind of like a hobby for me even if I don't win I like to see what come all over the map. Sometmes I win sometimes I lose. But that is what it is a Gamble. Win lots of money.Wink Oh, another thing I was at Horse-Racing the other day I seen a Guy I thought I knew him, I goe hey I know you from somewhere, he was sharp had a suit on looking like a Bussieness man or looked like he had just come from church, LOl. He saids well I don't know but its a secret don't tell nobody you seen me here, I just laughed at him, he should'nt be shame of what it does?

            I don't know about 'dirty looks' but I get these looks that say "why is this foreigner(New Yorker) playing the lottery for?". I'm probably the only foreigner in my area that plays everyday and I get this look. They (Chinese) think that we all have money so why am I playing. "It ain't no joke, yes I'm broke" ha..ha. Let them assume what they will. We got 'Keno' from the Chinese but the pick 3 is our (U.S.A.) creation. They copy so much from us it's crazy and then they think it's theirs. Ha..ha. Sometimes I tell them, you copy this (the lotteries) from us and they just smile because they know it's true. Happy gambling!

            Play to win!

                A few times in my life I've gotten some snooty looks, I don't care.

                  Dirty looks, no, but occassionally no matter which game someone will say, "Do you know the odds on that?".

                  When they say that, I just look on the back of the ticket and tell them the exact odds and thebn ask them, "Did you know the odds?"

                  I haven't got a response yet.

                  Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                  There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                    I live in an area where there's a pretty good population of a religion that thinks gambling is immoral and sinful, so I do see some holier than thou attitudes sometimes.  Of course they don't turn down the money I'm giving to schools to educate their 5 or 8 kids they keep popping out.

                          You would react the same way no matter when you experienced the "Dirty Looks":

                            No one has ever said anything and no one has ever looked at me and given me a dirty look but I can sometimes sense that someone behind me in line has a snooty attitude.

                            So I'll  usually get my ticket and then when I'm leaving, I'll stop and pause for a moment right next to the person and belch as loud as I possibly can and then smile and be on my way.

                            And believe me, I can belch really loud.

                            Oh man, I can rattle the windows.

                              Yes; people have given me dirty or jealous looks, or they make comments, such as I am wasting my money, or the odds are too high.. Well I tell them that I win all the time, or you can't win, if you don't buy a ticket.. That is as simple, as that!!

                               

                              Some of the people are just envious of your good fortune.. So take it in stride, as my mother would of said!
