During the time that we are purchasing tickets, there is a lot of discussion as to which color is the lucky one. Some people buy only one ticket; some buy fi ve or six. Some people buy only yellow tickets; some buy one of each color. The color selection and the number purchased by different people are topics of common discussion. After the tickets are bought, we sit in anticipation of the drawing. Some people make side deals by swapping tickets and discussing schemes for increasing their chances. Some people who do not have any small change on them borrow from the common bank for the lottery, and later there are loud and good-natured efforts at calling in the loans with threats of usurious interest rates.
