Buy tickets 买彩票
There was once a large, fat woman. She had a small, thin husband. He worked in a big office and got his weekly pay every Friday evening. As soon as he got home on Fridays, he had to give his wife all his money, and his wife gave him back only enough to buy his lunch in the office every day.
One day the small man came home very happily. He hurried into the living room. His wife was listening to the radio and eating apples there.
"You'll never guess what happened to me today, dear," he said. He waited for a few seconds and then said again, "I won ten thousand dollars buying the lottery tickets!"
"That's wonderful!" shouted his wife. Happily. But then she thought for a few seconds and said angrily, "But wait a minute! How could you have enough money to buy the tickets?"
