Nice win, but way too young to stop working completely.

      It's true that between the boyfriend angle and stuff like this ---"Next Monday, she said, she'll probably shop for an SUV. Then it's off to get an electric-blue Mustang GT convertible with dual exhaust and leather seats"---this story could have 'legs'. 

      Again, hoping she keeps the spending under control and provides for that son, first and foremost. It's a great age to win, providing you do it the right way.

          if she invests wisely- she will be fine, it's gonna take a lot of will power to say "No" to all the so called friends that will come calling, and calling they will especially those who will say they have fond memories of sharing a lunch or two in "kindergarten".

            Face Palm!   "didn't know she had the winning $66-million Mega Millions lottery ticket", chalk up another way to win.  Why is there no face palm icon on here?

              Nice to see a quick pick win again.

              WTG to her!

              If I win and they ask me what I'll do with it, I'll say spend it. I won't get specific and mention how I'm going

              to help everyone...I won't do that anyway. I think at any interview, the less you say, the better off you are.

              It's a mistake to come off as giving and big hearted, there are too many vultures out there who aren't afraid

              to ask for a buck.

              Be careful winner, you have a long way to go.

              Plenty sharks circling as well. Good luck to you and your family Miss.

                    Its often said that the person should get the Spending bug out of their system so they can sit down and concentrate on what to do with the excess funds. Nothing wrong with doing a spending splurge. She might well need all those things. She is at the material phase of life...which some folks don't grow out of ....

                    With having a child, she will need to step up and be even more responsible. 

                    She deserves good supportive people, may she have that thru life.

                    Not a fan of her comment " now people will treat her different", how sad that money would change people . Just curious if you can buy genuine kindness ? If so how much does it cost? I don't think I've seen it on sale anywhere? *wink*

                            I believe that is the same amount that David Lee Edwards won, so I guess the answer to your question is "Yes.  You can."

                              She can always Dump the boyfriend- that's an option, right?

                              They have been dating for 3 years and have a child together so unless their relationship was extremely stressful to begin with I would see no reason she would dump him.
