Lottery player, in no hurry, wins big

A Minnesota City man followed his typical lottery routine recently. He knew he had a winning scratch-off ticket, but he didn't scratch off the amount he'd won. He liked the surprise of finding out when he went to claim his winnings at the store. It could wait a day. Then there was a grilled cheese sandwich to eat. It was worth the wait: $100,000.
