Last Minute Shopping

     I was at a store this afternoon. I wasn't buying a Christmas gift. I was there for a more routine reason. There was a fellow ahead of me making quite a purchase. He said he was doing all his Christmas shopping then and there. From the looks of things he was buying presents for at least 25 people. It was a convenience store. He was buying lottery tickets.

Ahh, lottery tickets, the gift that keeps on taking.

I actually enjoy them for $1 but only at Christmas.

i've heard my african american friends call it the "black man's stock market" (they also call the casino this).
