Money and The Lottery

I just came back from the gast station.

I went to get a phone card to make a long distance phone call. So i stand there in line for about 5 minutes (I was second in line). I normally just concentrate in that I am going to pay and forget what is going on around me. After waiting for about 5 minutes i tool a quick look at what she was doing, then I realized she was running lottery tickets through their machine. Another 5 minutes went by and she was still running tickets from the person that was in front of me. I was amazed of how much some one could spend in lottery tickets. So i thought to myself “This person must have spend at least 30 dollars in this tickets!” I could not believe it.

After she finished running all the tickets she is ready to charge me. But the person in front of me goes “Now I want 80 dollars of ….. wait I am not in a hurry you can charge the people that are behind me” by this time there was at least 10 people before me. Can you believe it? This person was going to buy another 80 dollars worth of Lottery Tickets! the 80 dollars were in an evelope where it seemed like 1, 5 and 10 dollar bills.

I just dont understand some people. I cant imagine what this person could have done with 80 dollars insted of spending them in lottery tickets

Pearl Jam – Black

Sheets of empty canvas
untouched sheets of clay
Laid spread out before me
as her body once did

All five horizons
revolved around her soul
as the Earth to the Sun
Now the air I tasted and breathed
has taken turns

Oooh..
And all I told her was … everything
I know she gave me all that she wore
And now my bitter hands
chafe beneath the clouds
of what was everything
All the pictures have
all been washed in black
tattooed everything…

Oh…
I take a walk outside
I’m surrounded by some kids at play
I can feel their laughter
So, why do I sear?

Oh, I’m twisting thoughts that spin
round my head
I’m spinning … I’m spinning
How quick the sun can drop away…
And now my bitter hands
cradle broken glass
of what was everything
All the pictures have
all been washed in black
tattooed everything
All the love gone bad
turned my world to black
tattooed all I see…
all that I am…
all I’ll be….

I know some day you’ll have a beautiful life
I know you’ll be a sun
In somebody else’s sky
but why … why… why…
can’t it be… can’t it be mine…

We…
We belong…
We belong together
together…
We…
We belong…
We belong together… oh yeah…
