Old man Schwartz, every day, when he woke up, before he even got out of
bed would say:

"Lord, do you think maybe, today, I could win the lottery?"

For most of his 97 years on this planet he said this. Never won.

He dies, peacefully, and because he was a good man, goes to heaven,
where he finally gets to meet God, and says:

"Lord, my whole life, I was good. I committed no crimes, tried not to
lie, helped out my fellow men and women when I could, and never asked
you for anything but one thing. Would it have killed you, just once, in
all that time, to let me win the lottery?"

The Lord looks down at Old man Schwartz and says "Old man Schwartz ...
would it have killed you, just once, in all that time, to BUY A TICKET?"
