I was saving this number for a special occasion
I had the number, but played it in the wrong order.
I brought 60$ (3, 20s) to play roulette.
The plan was to bet 20$ on three different spins.
I already had the numbers peeled from a piece of furniture I recently gave away.
I played the 1st 20 on 22.
I played the 2nd 20 on 5.
I was going to play 22 again, but stuck with the plan and played 20 on 0.
I played out of order, I know. The 0 was iffy, since most of the time I call the numeral 0 the letter O, which would be 15 in the alphabet.
I had the number, I had the money, I had 3 plays.
On the 3rd spin 22 came up and I had my last 20 on 0.
Such is luck, but I didn’t mind losing as much as I normally would, since it was fun to put 20$ on only 1 number per spin. Only one number comes in.
Dad Tight used to get frustrated with me, because I didn’t cover my bets by boxing them; I only bet the way I thought the dogs or horses would actually finish. (Of course I don’t bet on live beings anymore, because of the enslavement and abuse situations.)
I could have spent a lot of money covering all numerical possibilities. I woke up the next morning happy that I didn’t.
My good fortune was being with family I hadn’t seen in a long time.
