If you won the lottery, what would you buy first? Would you splurge on a sports car and 10,000-square-foot mansion? Or would you go the responsible route, putting it in savings or donating a large sum to charity?
We've all had our own lotto dreams during lean financial times, and while it can be fun to think about, no one actually expects to ever win.
But one man won without even realizing it, and because of some seriously crazy circumstances, was two days away from being just another dreamer.
