Well, there does not seem a good place to record this kind of information in my AboutMe profile, so I'll just do it here.

This Christmas I received one of those $2.00 scratch off lottery cards from my Aunt. I am 48 years old and I never participated in anything like this in my life. So I venture to the corner market and, thank goodness, it is empty except for the two girls at the counter. I explain to them that I have no idea what I am doing and they inform me that I won $19.00. Wow! ... is what I said as I looked behind me and saw a line of ten angry cowboys holding their warming beers. So, I decided to "re-invest" my winnings into more scratch off tickets and I turned to appologize to the (now 15) angry cowboys behind me.

Exiting the front of the line headed to the cooler for a nice bottle of Orange Juice and re-entered the line I created and said at the top of my lungs "Geeze! What is taking so long!?" I think maybe two of the fifteen in line snickered.
