Told You So!

by Seth Mela

51-year-old Edna Aguayo is a retired cop who lives in Queens, New York. And she's always felt like she'd win the lottery someday . . . because a PSYCHIC told her it would happen.

Edna was at an amusement park 16 years ago, and a fortune teller said to buy as many lottery tickets as she could, for as long as it took . . . because she'd eventually win BIG.

Which is a TERRIBLE thing to tell someone, especially if they actually believe in psychics.

Anyway, Edna took her advice, and she's been buying lottery tickets ever since. Specifically, the psychic told her to buy the kind where you win "cash for life" . . . meaning you get a certain amount of money every week, or every month.

Which is pretty weird . . . because Edna JUST WON. Two weeks ago, she matched all six numbers on a lottery ticket . . . and the prize was a thousand dollars A DAY for the rest of her life. That's over $227,000 a year, after taxes.

Edna says she's planning to use the money to travel. And I assume she can finally stop buying lottery tickets now.
