What if your numbers came up in the lottery drawing, and you couldn't find the ticket.

I'd have lost my mind. Now this story has a happy ending, but it could've gone either way.

A couple from suburban Chicago, Cathy and Dave Seiden are a million dollars richer, but not before some major anxiety. Cathy bought the ticket, gave it to her husband and forgot about it. A friend heard the winner came from their grocery store.

And then panic set in. Where is the ticket. They tore the house apart. Finally, they found it in a pile of papers.

The Chicago Tribune reports today they got their check for one million dollars.
