I have never been into gambling or lottery or playing cards or games. I soon learnt as a child that I always lost, so why bother. Even now, my horse comes last when the teachers at my school have a private bet on a famous race; that or its legs drop off before the finishing line. In the raffle I win nothing, not a prize and not a cheap pen with name of the local savings bank on it, just nothing. And wishing? That's for the fairies.
