South Georgia couple wins Mega Millions.
It wasn't us. I just wanted to quell your curiosity. I know the minute you heard about it, you were wondering.
No, I'm the same unassuming girl you read over the weekend. Unchanged by a windfall of millions suddenly appearing in my lap.
I've felt alternately happy and sorry for these people. (I don't know them.)
It must be surreal to wake up "the day after" in your same humble surroundings knowing that you are a millionaire but having nothing to show for it but a little slip of paper. Life changed...but not. Yet.
But, can you imagine how overwhelming it is? Suddenly, the world is on your doorstep asking how it feels to be a millionaire. I bet "friends" are coming out of the woodwork. Charities calling to offer their "congratulations and consider us when you give". I would wonder when going out to eat with people if they would always expect to be treated to a meal now because, "after all, you certainly can afford it."
I'm scared for them that after living paycheck to paycheck, they'll think they now have an endless supply of money. Let's face it, we tend to spend what we have.
"'We're not gonna change,' she said wearing flip-flops and warm-up pants. 'I'm too country.'"
You already have, honey.
You already have.
