I went a bit mad last week and invested in a €4 lotto quick pick and won the stately sum of €5.
When I went to cash in my fortune, however, the shop assistant, with a sheepish grin, said that the lotto till didn’t have enough cash to cover my winnings.
Feck, says I, this must be the first time that the lotto bank has been broken.
The same shop assistant was on duty last night when I called in on the way home from a walk.
Sorry, she said, with a big smile, the lotto closes at 10pm, I hope you haven’t booked a holiday in the Seychelles?
We laughed but I was thinking to myself – How did she know?
