HELLLLL YEAHHHHH, Coming home from the park . We stopped at my normal shopping Convience store. Bought a few packs of smokes. (Marlboro Menthols). Catching my eye was number 16 on the lottery Scratch Tickets Rack. I never buy those things . Due to losing all my money all the time. I said "Hell why not, Give me 5 number 16's. Which were 5.00 Triple 777's. I knew right then I was a bigger loser than before. Sitting back in the Cobalt, Laying the cigarettes on top of the lottery tickets. My wife replied " Wasting more money tonight huh." I was just quite until we got home. Sit down at the table and started scratching . From last to first. First one I won 5.00 . WHOO HOOO. Number 2 = LOSER, number 3=loser , number 4 = MFW 7,777.00. I didnt get it at first. I have never seen the little letters with an X on there before. Always a p,b,m,z,d, you know all the losers. I realized I just fucking WON !!!!!!!!! HOLY SHIT !!!!!!! I yelled at my wife . WE FU*KIN WON> WE WON WE WON!!!!!!!!!! She thinks I am playing and when she sees the ticket she doesnt believe me or the ticket. Finally it kicks in that we just WON 7,777.00. First thing she says is good we can pay some credit cards off. DOWNER !!! Not what I wanted to hear at a time like this. So I say " I be damn. I am going to finally build my motor. " Well then the arguing starts. I think since I bought the tickets I am entitled to do what I wish with the money. Which I will . Or I will whine and cry like a baby until I get my way !!!! I called the convience store and asked if they could cash something in that amount . First thing they did was laugh , second thing was I have to call Virginia Lottery in the morning and let them know and show them the ticket, Which They will cut the check there- minus the taxes and the convience stores cut. WTF , the store gets a cut for taking my money . Thats the most bull crap I have heard yet. The woman on the phone told me that I will recieve about 3400.00 out of 7,777.00. Which is better than nothing but not what I was wanting to hear. I am still in shock . Never won anything before. Not in this degree. So I am getting ready to search on parts and whats the best way to build my motor and do it all within my budget. I know its not alot. But hell it should do some justice. JUST WANTED TO SHARE MY HAPPINESS .
