The butterflies in my stomach swirled as I was told the news. I won, I really won. I couldn't believe it,
and couldn't stop smiling. The following hours, it seems as if a thousand thoughts crossed my mind of what I would do.
A fancy dinner, a lavish trip. Finally buying that nice outfit I always put back. Enjoying every second with friends and
family like never before. I was going to go for it now.

All those things I had ever wanted to do but didn't seem possible, It was so simple now, so possible. I would just do it.
Everything seems so much more intense now. The sun warming my face was so pleasurable.
The smell of the coffee brewing was so delicious smelling. Seeing my little boy run, heck even cry. I savored every moment with utter glee. Even
my jerk neighbor that always walked on my yard, it didn't bother me one bit, I just gave him a thumbs up.

It was as if it was Christmas morning all over again. The hopefulness, the joy, the innocence. The reality of what is so important.
I won the lottery, they finally found a match, and I'm getting a new liver tomorrow!

And then I woke up. I gloomy look dressed upon my soul. What the hell was that? A form of torture? How could I even believe such a thing.

Every day in that loathing gas station I had spent my hard earned cash and all I get was a #ing dream? This #ing town. I can't believe it. All I spent, and those bastards think they can just not give me anything. I played for years...For years... I am owed something!

No... This is a dream of what's to come. This is how it will be. I'll have to play again. Again! After work... then ill win it!

Very nice twist and a good job at fleshing out the character's thoughts.
