Dream Come True: A Trifecta Writing Challenge

The weekend is here, nearly gone, actually -- and it's been a cool one.
I mean temperature-wise.
Hence, I've stayed inside the apartment, read a great book, and drank copious amounts of coffee and dreamed about winning lotteries.
This weekend's Trifecta Writing Challenge is as follows:
Complete the following story in 33 words:
'It wasn't the first time.'
-- Here's my starry-eyed response:

It wasn't the first time.
Nor even the second. Nearer a thousand and one, give or take. But Cipriano wouldn't select those six numbers on any Lottery ballot ever again. Because this Friday, he won the damn jackpot!

Click on the image of me walking away with the loot to see that this is not exactly "the first time" I have mused upon this topic...

I once was one number shy of winning $10,000,000.
That's the closest I ever got and had to settle for the $2,000 consolation prize!
Therefore, I've still gotta go to work tomorrow.
And after work -- I'll buy another Lotto ticket!
