My truck driver buddy, Sammy, was in

from a run to L.A. Friday morning. We were lounging at Galloping Gerties Bar and Grill sipping breakfast when suddenly the URGE hit. I bought ten bucks in pull tab tickets and brought them back to the table. I took another sip of breakfast and looked at Sammy. Sammy looked at me. I opened the first ticket. $404 dollar winner. Then five $1 winners in a row. Not a bad start.

My other buddy, Big Rick, said if you gamble another dime, I'll break all your fingers. So we all sipped more breakfast and when Rick left I snuck another $10. Didn't win squat. Who needs fingers anyway.
