Margarine Brings One Couple Millions

You know the phrase, "out of something bad often comes something good?" Well, a couple in New Zealand is living proof of that! According to this article, a New Zealand man (name not identified) went to the supermarket in search of a special the store was running on margarine. Much to his dismay, by the time the man arrived at the store, the margarine special was over. Feeling rather disgruntled at missing the margarine special, the man decided to buy a Big Wednesday lottery ticket. He thought nothing of it and returned home to report to his wife that he did not make the margarine special. A few days later the couple was reading the newspaper and discovered they had won "a first division prize package worth $2,997,140 made up of $2 million cash, an Aston Martin V8 Vantage, an Audi Q7, a $250,000 American Express platinum card, a $250,000 luxury travel package and a Rayglass Legend 2500 Boat." Now if that's not a reward for missing out on the margarine than I don't know what is.

I hope that everyone has a safe and happy weekend! I'm off to Dallas for the state fair and TX vs. OU game. Hook em horns!
