Tell no one. Go on a shopping spree. Buy the family gifts. Quit your job. Let them guess for a-little while. Have fun with it.

      I would only tell my brother who is good at keeping a secret.  He and I would be traveling the world in first class.  I wouldn't carewhoa many people find out after that jackpot check hits my bank accounts because I would rarely be at home.  As for deluge of begging letters...if it is from anyone who has not written to me prior to that jackpot win, it will immediately into recycling bin.  I would travel so much I would just put my bill payments on auto pilot...then rack up hundreds of thousands of frequent flyer miles.  I would attempt to fly a million miles in a single calendar year.  Now I just need my six numbers to drop this week.

      Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

      The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!
