One particular kind of lottery ticket

“She gave him a look like you might give a dog that had just told you it was a good day to spend all your money on one particular kind of lottery ticket.”

    Gibson is just fantastic with his phrasing. I love this one.

    i know! isn’t it just, like, “WHAT???? WHY??? …. HOW!!!!”

    My dad asked me for two bucks because apparently if I give him lotto money (in addition to his own lotto money), it’d be “lucky”. Uh-huh, right dad. I told him that he should just work hard and to try not to believe that winning 14 bajillion dollars will bring happiness. Sigh, why do I always have to be the adult?!
