My best friend and I were born five days apart. This has always led to several fun joint celebrations, starting with our arrival at the ripe old age of 18. Being the great risk-takers that we are, we took Houston by storm, hitting up the liquor stores with our fake IDs, renting a hotel room, hosting a huge party and trashing the place while getting totally wasted.

Who am I kidding; our lives were nothing like that movie 10 Things I Hate About you. Friday after school we went to the local Diamond Shamrock, got cappuccinos, and bought some scratch-offs and lotto tickets. Why? Because we were 18 and could legally purchase them! The most disappointing part, other than the fact all our tickets were losers, was that we weren’t even carded. We thrust our IDs at the clerk, who probably pretended to look at them only because we were acting like morons. Now, its a slight inconvenience to pull out the ID, though I probably get carded more now than I did then. Not that it’s a completely bad thing.

Anyway, up until now, the two or three times I got a scratch off on a whim, I have always been a loser. The state of Texas is now my bitch. I’m sure Texas really going to miss those twenty dollars I just won, what with the recession and all…
