Why is it that holidays seem to bring on disease for me?

Back at New Years I had the flu…now, coming down the back side of a cold that hit full bore on Sunday.

Is this karma setting me up for a lotto win or something?

Hmmm…maybe I need to buy a ticket. I have always subscribed to the theory that gambling is voluntary taxes for the stupid. Last time I was in a casino was at one of our horse races almost two years ago. I have been back to the races, but not the casino…and being we are usually in the barn preparing a horse, it makes me superstitious enough that I do not bet on races even.

Years ago I used to work at a store running the lotto machine. That is why I am afraid to play now. There were these people, for lack of a better term, throwing twenty dollar bills that they could not afford at me in order to play.

I would see the large woman with long greasy hair…oxygen tank pulled by one hand and cigarette in the other…child attached by a leash and a liquor store bag under her arm. Of course, being it was a pharmacy, she had come in for cigs, lotto and potato chips…two bags of chips, one for her and the other to shut the kid up.

Is it any wonder I do not play the lotto?

I have better things to spend my money on…

Take porn, for example…


  1. Science suggests we get sick on holidays because we let ourselves relax and all the stress from work hits us in order to rejuvinate ready to go again.
    In otherwords…we don’t take long enough holidays.
