Virginia woman dreams of Obama, wins lottery

Virginia LotteryVirginia Lottery: Virginia woman dreams of Obama, wins lottery

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. — You could call it a sweet dream.

A Virginia Beach woman says she dreamed about chatting with President Barack Obama, so the next day she played his birthday — Aug. 4, 1961 — in the Cash 5 daily lottery game.

Simone Christian felt so strongly about it she bought two tickets Oct. 15 with those numbers, so when they hit she received $200,000 instead of the game's top prize of $100,000.

The winning numbers were 1, 4, 6, 8 and 19.

As if that wasn't sweet enough, Virginia Lottery officials tell the Virginian-Pilot that Christian and her husband, Stanley, also won the game's top price in September of 2006.

Christian says she has no plans for the winnings.

Sweet dream!

Although, they should add that she had to have played more than two tix because 8/4/1961 yields more than just the combination she won with.

"...a chance to push everything aside, the circumstances that've controlled our lives, and do it our way now. Good, bad or otherwise. You'll maybe get lost in it, tied up in it a little bit, but if you work your way through that the real you shows up, I think. Maybe what's at your core deep down, maybe that comes out. Maybe that's what it's about." Mike Pace

    I would consider that a nightmare ................ that must end 1-20-2013! Yikes!

    Sounds a little far fetched & something like the 2 people that "lost" the winning ticket in Connecticut!!!!!!!!!!!

                        The News Report got it wrong.

                        When you see Obama in your sleep it's not a dream - it's a nightmare.

                        God bless the Christians though, they look like nice people and I hope they keep on winning.
