Another Little Scratch

--by lewski711, posted May 23, 2015
I buy a lottery ticket every week in hopes of hitting the big jackpot. Today, I bought my ticket, then asked the cashier which scratcher is the luckiest. She told me so I bought it.

I asked, "So you think this one is lucky?"

She raised her hands to the sky as if saying, "Hope to God."

I put down a "Smile Card" a penny, and left the ticket. "I hope you are right," I said. "It's yours."

She was shocked. She gasped. "Really? Thank you."

I walked out and told her, "Good luck."
