Tale Weaver – #280 – Tickets – June 18th.

This week, Michael asks about ‘Tickets’.

It could be tickets you have or had for show you loved or didn’t, simple act of buying a ticket for the bus, train or in a raffle. Some people are said to have tickets on themselves.
Everyone entrusted me with their bingo tickets, so in the end, I was running six.
It was OK once I got the hang of it as the numbers were all in order and in columns for single digits, tens, twenties, thirties, forties, fifties, sixties, seventies, eighties/top of the shop 90. The most number any one column had was three, so lining them all up, I could scan down the column and cross them off as they were called out.
I was very lucky, winning four corners, a top line, middle line, bottom line and even a full house.
Everyone got a prize, except the owner of the 6th ticket, which just happened to be me.
I got this image from the internet when I did a post before, and I’ve just noticed that it’s wrong. The numbers in the columns should all be in ascending order, so I doubt if any wins would have been honoured here!

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. Isn’t that always the case? That is why they say it is sacrificing. You try to help and it comes back to bite you in the butt. This case, makes you wish you hadn’t even played. Lol

    Every Tuesday as I grew up my mother went to housie. Without fail she’d be out the door by 6.30. It was as much a social event as anything for her.
