I've never gambled. I never got the taste for it.
One of the lads who worked for my owld fellah in the 60s, a sinewy little bloke from Fermanagh, would spend every spasre minute reading the form in the Racing Post. He taught me how to read form and what all the strange abbreviations meant, but he also taught me, inadvertently, that the gamblers tended to need more subs on the wages during the week than the lads that didn't back the horses or the dogs.
I don't even do the lottery....although my littlest sister, who does like a bit of a bet, bought me 50 lottery scratch cards for my 50th birthday, and, not one word of a lie, I won 50 quid! I wasted half an hour scratching away with a 2p coin, and got that silvery-rubbery crap all over me kex, and got exactly what she paid out. Wouldn't it have been easier just to give me the 50 quid?
