Here comes the first ball
I calmly rang an old mate in Manchester, who is also seasoned gambler, and told him what had happened. I was greeted with hysterical laughter which was not spiteful but in keeping with the fact that I have a reputation as a complete Jonah. What may seem peculiar was that even then I could chuckle at the irony - and still do. You win some, you lose some. Knowing that I had scrimped and saved a significant amount of money to place ante post on a 'good thing' running at Newmarket on the Friday, my friend told me, "You watch, Dutch Art will finish second now. As for the lottery theres no point playing that now, unless you want to fund more mosques." I think its his cheerful optimism and encouragement that make us such good friends.
..the second ball is..
The next two days were strange as the lottery obviously dominated my thoughts. I must have been in a weird mood as I actually cleaned the flat. I did feel a stab of pain when those ****ers at the council did not actually take the payment for my council tax till the Friday. So I could have played my numbers after all, mind you the council do a fine job - their anally retentive incompetence has almost become an entertainment. But with about a dozen people getting five numbers and the bonus, I calculated that if I had bought my ticket as usual then I would have picked up between £60 - £70,000. Not the jackpot, but it was as good as for me - working my backside off for a bunch of corrupt, incompetent clowns masquerading as management in a company built on in breeding and nepotism.
..and the third ball..
However, thoughts of my near miss were banished on the Friday as I sat down to watch Dutch Art as he ran in the prestigious July Cup.
..if you've matched three, you're already a winner...
