Should I buy a Lottery ticket?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Should I buy a Lottery ticket?

On my ride this morning I had a lucky break. A Honda CRV finally passed me after following me for a while. After it passed the driver drifted into the shoulder, then corrected back into the lane, then disappeared out of view. Up the road about 1/2 mile later the Honda was pulled over with emergency flashers on, and the driver was just sitting on the edge of her seat with her feet on the road. I asked if she was ok. She replied “ l fell asleep. I could see very little damage to her bumper, but she had flattened a mail box!!!
I thought that could have been me!
What do you think, my lucky day! My birthday too.

A friend once told me "you must have some good Karmah" after a car just missed me as I was walking.

If you think this makes you lucky, then imagine the luck of the person who didn't even have a close call.

No. Do not buy lottery tickets. You have already used up your luck for this lifetime.

If you're feeling lucky, head over to a dumpster.
