Sometimes hard work is never enough.
Piecework. There’s money on some days, and on others, none.
Break time. A smoke, a cup of coffee, a piece of bread or biscuit, or just a breather. The laughter is free, if one can afford it.
Luck will surely come in handy. A lottery winning goes a long way to recover all the lost bet.
Living off the land, or off the sea, and relying on luck in harvesting what nature has to offer.
At the end of it all, we just need to make the most with what we have.
