I spend $10 a week
participating in the office lotto pool.
Playing the lottery
doesn’t make sense financially.
The odds of winning are very, very low.
So why am I part of it?
in the office lotto pool
DOES make sense… for me.
It is a quick way of announcing
that I am part of the team,
that I am one of them.
Normally I don’t get asked
until months into a contract.
It is a signal
from someone on the list
that I’ve gone from an outsider
to being one of the team.
So I don’t shrug off that signal.
and amplify that belonging
to the others.
