If you're like most people who spend a lot of time playing state-lottery scratch-off games, you have the IQ of an artichoke. But also you have many times asked yourself, ``Gosh darn it, why can't I have a dedicated surface for scratching my lottery tickets, as well as a place to keep my lucky scratching coin, a storage area for my tickets AND a receptacle to catch these pesky scratch-off shavings?''

Well, the wait is over for you and any lottery players on your holiday gift list. The Lottery Mate is an all-in-one lottery-scratching apparatus made, according to the manufacturer, of ''the same durable plastic used for car and truck bumpers.'' If that doesn't say ''classy,'' then we don't know what does. So this year, give the gift that sends the clear message, ''I paid $12.95 for this gift.'' As the manufacturer states: ``Once you try it, you'll never scratch without it.''
