Do you gamble? Play Bingo? Cards for money? Sitting around her metal kitchen table at 250 Main Street, Nana taught me to play 'penny ante' poker. She had a coffee can of pennies and when that hit the table, I knew an hour of cards and joking at my expense lay on the horizon. And to tell you the truth, except for a few 50/50 games at sporting events or a few pools, that's about the extent of my gambling addiction. Sure, I want to win MegaBucks, but I always forget to play, even when the stakes are high. Now, for some irony, I do have, what I consider, a favorite (lucky) number. I really like the way 22 looks. Call me crazy. Yes, I have a favorite number, but I never play it. Go figure!
