I'm a millionaire...
That's what Clarence Seay kept on saying over and over again, after he won $5 million from a Virginia Lottery scratch-off ticket a few weeks ago - "I'm a millionaire!"
That has a good ring to it, eh? I hope I get to say that one day soon too!
But the thing is, when Clarence Seay bought his winning scratch ticket, he wasn't even hoping to become a millionaire.
I was hoping to win maybe $100,000. Winning $5 million never entered into my mind.
As you already know, he didn't win the $100,000 he was hoping for. Oh well. But hey, at least he got 50 times more than what he was hoping for ;)
Enjoy your fortune, Mr Millionaire!
Postscript: I gotta go now - I'm off to the store to buy a scratch-off ticket. I'm crossing my fingers; I hope to win
