Talking Dictionary78. Invest $2 In The Lottery (1)


78. "Are you going to play this week? I need your $2," said John. Joe said, "I think I'll pass this week." John said, "Are you sure? This might be our week. I've got a feeling." Joe said, "You've had 'a feeling' every week for the last year." They both laughed. Every Monday, John collected $2 each from 11 coworkers. They played the lottery twice a week, every week. Sometimes one coworker skipped a game or two. They had never won more than a few dollars. This week, five of the regular players chose not to play. "I'm tired of not winning," said Bill. "Two dollars every week adds up. I think I'm going to take a break for a whole month." Mort wanted to play, but he didn't have any cash on him. John said, "I'll put $2 in for you. You can pay me back later." Mort thanked him. 1.6
