If being poorly means I get winning lottery tickets in my get well soon cards then I’m down for being in hospital for the rest of the year.
Unfortunately, I don’t even get empty get well soon cards, nor do I have much luck with the ol’ gambling.
Tell that to 46-year-old Joseph Amorese though, who just bagged a cool $7,000,000 (£4.7m) from his winning ‘Golden Ticket’ lottery scratcher.
The jammy sod from Easton, Pennsylvania, was recovering from a hernia operation when he opened his get well soon card from his dad.
I scratched the ticket and it was a good thing I was already sitting down because I was shocked. I was and still am in complete disbelief.
I sent my dad a picture of the ticket and he said, ‘Yup, you won $7,000,000’.Advertisement
Joseph and his wife Jodi have said they will both keep their jobs, despite the win.
Meanwhile, I’m going for a cold shower.
