Scratch it

There is a lady sitting in front of me in Safeway right now scratching away at her lottery ticket. It must not have been a winner. She went and came back with another one.

In the past, my view have been of disapproval. I see the Casino buses in Chinatown. The elderly, with their social security checks off to deposite it in the loca casino.

The lady in front of me must be around 77 years old. Now I'm older, I understand her now. Life of the elderly. The same rutine everday. All your friend and family have died. Who would want to befriend a old woman. To love again is out of the question. Life of boredome. For a dollar a small flash of hope and excitement for the week.

Scratch away grandma. Scratch away.
