I never really thought it was a big deal either. I mean, I understand that I’m not supposed to gamble. I don’t go to the local riverboat casinos. Mostly because I don’t like the way they make me feel. They are dark, and smell of smoke. I don’t understand the rules of Blackjack or how to ‘play the tables’ so I have never seen the allure of the Casinos.
I never really thought that playing the Lottery was gambling. Everyone does it. It's so common place. Every Saturday night, they pick the numbers for the various tickets—LIVE on TV. It’s always been a part of my life and my TV viewing from the time I was young.
