Tessie claims that her husband was not given enough time to pick his piece of paper. She also thinks it isn't fair that she ended up with the black dot. Perhaps, in a wider context, she could be commenting on the Lottery tradition itself: there is nothing "fair" about it.

IT'S part of a family discussion. Is it fair or not fair, why?


My spouse and I read it decades ago. My granddaughter has read it. and now, we're having a discussion.
