Now... are those 3 steps back just regular steps? moon walk steps? or 3 steps while doing the "Running Man" dance move? Those are not equal steps at all!

I confess, spilled coffee on my treasure map, I have no idea , lol

Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

For a lead role in a cage?

      The winners I cash in.  Before the draw they go next to my computer in my office.  The losers I keep In a small plastic box to deduct from taxes :) 

      i must see a picture of the wallpaper with the losing tickets lol.

        As soon as I buy the ticket I put it in my wallet before I even leave the store counter. Losers get trashed as soon as I check them against two sources. I buy one line for Powerball, Mega Millions and Lousiana Lotto for each draw, multi purchases for ten or twenty draws so I don't have to keep going to the store.

          In a plastic sleeve with the number 8 in it, and the sleeve goes under a little green leprechaun.

          Lep

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

          Lep

          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 keep mine in a nifty little wallet the Texas Lottery retailers give out from time-to-time.  I keep the lottery tickets and filled out and extra blank play slips in it, along with a few dollars- my winnings when I'm on a "winning streak". (which means there's usually no money in it).

              I don't keep my losing tickets to offset any taxes;  instead I've been using them for wallpaper.  So far I've done my bedroom, the utility room and about half of the living room.

              I had my house just about done, then Idaho Lottery changed the paper!  Had to tear them all off and start over.

              I keep my extended play tickets in an envelope so I don't get disgusted and accidentally throw them away with draws left.  I know those numbers so I don't have to actually look at them to check them.

              The single play tickets I clip together with binder clips according to day of the draw.  So Powerball, Hot Lotto, and Wild Card are all together, etc.  And they're all kept in the drawer of my computer desk.

                I remember someone putting it in his shoes or socks and wear them. I don't exactly remember.

                  I just use the lottery wallets to carry my playslips and tickets, but once I get home the tix go in my desk drawer.

                  Those red plastic wallets always tear at the fold, but I like them because they keep the playslips and tix dry when it rains. I did get a blue one a while back that's more like  cloth. I keep it in my truck, but don't use it much because it doesn't fold over like the red one.

                    I never got a red one, but have several of the blue.  I got one of those fabric-y ones but don't like it either.   A few weeks back I was carrying in groceries during a hard rain and stuck my lottery tickets in my shirt pocket and they still got wet.  Some of the numbers smeared and I fretted that if I won, I'd be the subject of a news story in L.P. about having to sue the Texas Lottery in order to claim my win.  I've got several promotional items the clerks at my preferred store have given me-  a bottle opener, scratcher coins and coozie and was working at that liquor store when Texas first started the lottery and we got a bunch of different items like t-shirts.  At one time, I bet I had at least a hundred different liquor/beer t-shirts, but Texas law prohibited them from being worn by store employees.
