The Lottery Seller

I knew him personally. In the evening when I checked the result, my face became glum. Later I realized that he was gloomier than me. The lottery ticket result page was underlined with numbers that had won the prize. So I asked him: “so many of your tickets have won the prize, then why are you feeling so dull”. He replied: “today I did not even win a single prize. I have done that to dupe the public so that they will not stop buying tickets”. We smiled together, a funny pathetic smile.
