Just ducked out at lunch to fill my gas tank and grab a delicious iced caramel latte. While in the quicky mart, I decided to throw caution to the wind and buy a scratch ticket. For ten dollars, I could make retirement happen way sooner than when I'm planning to, which is, by my calculations, age 93. A bargain, I reasoned.
Well, my visit to the quicky mart cost me this:
iced caramel latte: $3.31
scratch ticket: $10.00
Moral of the story: gambling, as well as lattes, are for suckers.
