A lotta people don't like making committments.

It's like the the ham and eggs on your plate.

The chicken made a contribution.

The pig made a committment.

    Filled out a lottery slip, given it another look and decided that for some reason the numbers don't gel with you.So you discard that slip, fill out another and when those numbers don't come through for you that night, you start reflecting back on the " original" slip you filled out and tossed and wonder what if " that was the winning ticket or in less cases- you won a few grand?" Particularly if you did not write down those original numbers on a separate piece of paper?

    Or are you the person that says " No 2nd thoughts on my numbers?" - hand in the slip, get your ticket and walk away: Hoping for the best?

        oh yea they were my step kids birth date numbers and i thought 2 of them were to low so i replaced them with higher numbers. i liked to blew my mind  i went home got in front of the mirror and kicked myself in the ass a couple times polished off a fifth of Yukon Jack and walked around for a week moping and groaning.
         
        For weeks before they had that drawing i had a dream that i was signing the paperwork at the lottery office. This was back in the 80's when Maryland had a twice a week million dollar drawing.
         
        I won't ever change any numbers like that again.

            My wife thought it was a big joke but i kept the play slip showed it to her and she laughed some more. Really made my misery much more sorrowful. But Yukon Jack has a way of numbing brain cells so i just drank more until the pain of losing went by and by. Little more than half a million after taxes would have gotten us a nice house in the country back then.
             
            Can't cry for to long over spilt milk i still play a couple sets of birthday numbers every draw a bit different numbers from those long ago ones. That dream has slipped away maybe I'll have to conjure it up for this mega draw lol.

                  Your first impression is always your best.

                  2nd guessing will only lead to another "but what if I did it this way?" and on and on.

                  Write down your 2nd guesses for awhile and check them and you'll see.

                  My Late Grandma would say "Don't even think, Play your first Gut...that's the one!"

                  Another one she would say, "No one sent you to think, you went to Play! Then Play"

                  forget what "they" say about youWhat you say about you?...

                  Now, does it count??

                    Your Mamaw was right, Rosie!

                    Your first instinct is always your best.

                    You can't count on it to be right every time.

                    But you can count on your 2nd guess to be wrong almost every time.

                    A lotta people have to learn that the hard way.
