The Mega Millions jackpot is at an astonishing $636 million and is what's on the mind of a lot of people Tuesday, many of whom would think twice about coming in to work Wednesday if they had the winning ticket.
"I would buy a whole bunch of new shoes," Robyn Nance said.
"I know exactly what I would get. I would get a monster truck," Mark Peterson said.
"Totally, I want naming privileges for Martin Stadium at WSU. It would be the Derek Deis Stadium ... and my wife has always wanted to buy Michael Jackson's Neverland Ranch," Derek Deis.
Back to life, back to reality, at the Holiday Gas Station on North Division, manager Sharon Coggeshell was busy to say the least.
"Insane. We have been selling Mega Millions tickets since I walked in the door," she said.
How insane? In only a few hours time Tuesday morning the jackpot increased by $50 million.
"I don't think that the normal people who have never had a lot of money really understand the fathom of what that money will do for them," Coggeshell said.
So what would she do if she bought a ticket and won?
"My husband and I, our dream is to go and live out in the country. So definitely I would love to make that phone call," she said.
