Imagine my disappointment this morning when I woke up and found out that I did not win the $636 Million Mega Millions jackpot.  Just how could someone else win it and it not be me. Not only a someone, but two someones.  If they have to share it, why not with me?  Seriously, this holiday season just got a lot merrier for two lucky people.  Two tickets matched the winning numbers in Tuesday night's $636 million Mega Millions jackpot splitting the second largest prize in U.S. history.  One winning ticket was sold in Atlanta, Georgia, and the other was sold in San Jose, California according to lottery officials.  The winning numbers were 8, 14, 17, 20 and 39, with a Megaball of 7. Twenty ticket holders will win $1 million after matching all the numbers except the Megaball.  Can you imagine being one of those 20 people checking their ticket and realizing they had all correct numbers until that Megaball came up?  I bet their heart was racing waiting for that last number.

The closest I have ever come with these multi-million dollar drawings is 3 numbers and as you can see, I had nothing to be excited about. I had only one number drawn on my ticket.  Thanks to dreamers like me, strong sales boosted the jackpot to $636 million
