Call: Why do I buy scratchcards when I know I won’t win?
Response: Because someone has to win.
Call: Why do I pray when I don’t believe in God?
Response: Because someone might hear me.
This year Sophie Meehan has been buying a lot of scratchcards. It’s been the worst year of her life, but some good things have happened. She won 8 euro once. In a new performance art piece, she’ll share her rituals and indulgences and play the game of chance, just once. She won’t hear your responses, she won’t know if you’re there, but she’ll do it anyway. Pray responsibly, pray for fun.
by Ben Sullivan and Síofra O’Meara
