Hmm...

I just had this thought when I saw an ad on tv for Scratch 'n' Win. With Scratch 'n' Win you buy a game card, use the edge of a coin to remove a square of coating from it, and hope that underneath is a message congratulating you for winning megabucks.

But I'm an eczema-sufferer, right? So whenever I see that ad, I just think "If only! I'd be super-rich by now!".

And think of all the adventures you could have if you were super rich.
I hate scratching the stupid card things. Which I guess is a good thing unless I don't get the winning ticket

As a kid I was so OCD about peeling that I peeled an entire coating of paint of a metal folding chair one summer.
Didn't win anything though.

angela: I like playing that game a lot - where I imagine what I'd do if I were super rich. It's supposed to be very insightful, you know.

nigel: Did you do that with sunburn too? 'Cos I totally did...

Oh yeah, and with my coloring I never had a sunburn shortage.
