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!
