Won the lottery

So we are those people who only buy a ticket when the jackpot is obscene, and usually it is the Hubby who actually makes an effort. Today we dropped 5 bucks on tickets. He picked the first row of numbers and quick picked the rest. Well, on the set that he picked, we got 2 numbers plus the ball so we won a grand total of $10. You heard me right folks. Big winners!
That ALMOST paid for one of our tickets into the movie theater tonight, almost.
Which brings me to a funny thought today. We took Hubby's cousin to see The Hunger Games. We have not been to the movies in a while, and we usually go to the discount theater. Well, when our total for 3 adults was about $35, I thought the Hubby was going to crap a golden egg. He started bitching to the poor girl behind the glass, grumbled when he handed over his debit card, and then complained when we got inside. I just looked at him and told him "Ok, old man, that is enough." Then I asked his cousin if he was reminded of his Uncle (Hubby's father,) he smiled and said he was already thinking that. That only netted us ugly looks from the Hubbs. His grumblings were subsided by the free small popcorn we got with our movies rewards card (kind of like a Kroger card for the movies.) Only then did he realize that if he got his FREE popcorn, he would have to buy drinks because it would make him thirsty, thus reigniting the old man mojo. I was really glad when the movie was over, and proved itself worthy of the $40-something we had forked over, otherwise I would never hear the end of it- Even if we did end the day by winning $10.
