From the Washington Post:

They were already calling Melvyn Wilson “Mr. Lucky” back in 2005, when he hit the lottery three times in 10 months: $500,000 in November 2004, $25,000 in March 2005, and then $1 million from a scratch-off bought at a Woodbridge gas station in September 2005. Two years later, the postal worker retired.

Now, he’s done it again: Wilson, 72, bought, scratched and won another $500,000 at the Handy Dandy Market on Occoquan Road in Woodbridge recently, the Virginia Lottery announced Tuesday. The latest hit came in the “Millionaire Mania” game, which costs $20 per ticket. That brings his lottery winnings now to just over $2 million on those four games alone.

 

Look at the Panama hat, tipped like a young Frank Sinatra's. Look at that shit-eating grin. Look at those indoor sunglasses. Mr. Lucky is standing there and thinking about that month-long trip to the Bahamas he's about to take, and he's probably mentally tallying the $2 million in free money he's collected over the last nine years.

He is my hero. He's probably going to win the $360 million Powerball tonight. BRB, traveling to Virgina to rub his head.
