when the mega millions jackpot
hit 1 billion dollars tonight
i decided to take my chances
shell out 2 dollars
buy a lucky ticket
and imagine for at least 12 hours
what i would do with my billion
not a bad price for half a day of creative fun.
the winning ticket?
what would you do with a billion dollars if you won?
‘a billion here, a billion there, and pretty soon you’re talking about real money.’
Man forgets glasses, buys winning lottery ticket
Fairfield, Conn. — A man in southwestern Connecticut who mistakenly bought the wrong lottery ticket is $30,000 wealthier.
Bob Sabo, of Easton, says he didn’t want to wait in line to buy a lottery ticket at the Super Stop & Shop in Fairfield, so he decided to buy a ticket from a lottery vending machine — something he had previously never done.
Sabo says he meant to buy two $20 tickets, but says *he didn’t have his glasses on and instead bought a $30 ticket. When he got home, he discovered the ticket was a winner.
*(and he is clearly my kindred spirit)
