"I'm not going after anything", she told the Post. She would not disclose the reason their marriage ended but said she was paying Weirsky spousal support. She added that she doesn't plan to get in touch, at least for a couple of months: "He'll think I'm there with my hand out and I have no intention to do that".

"I was down, and somehow now, all of a sudden, I'm way up", Weirsky told news conference reporters with a laugh.

"Think about it. How long did I work?"

"I just didn't believe that it was me, after all these years of playing, I finally had something that said, you're a bigger victor than $2", he said.

All the money in the world won't bring her back to her former husband of 15 years.

"I was very thankful there was an honest person out there because I thought it was gone", he said. "She's like, 'What's that mean?' I said, 'I won 273 million dollars.' She's like, 'Get the hell out of here"'.

He said that he had been doing handyman work for a friend to make money before winning the lottery.

Trudeau on Scandal: Nothing to See Here, Move Along

Weirsky says he was a "bum" before and after high school, so maybe he'll be a "beach bum" now.

"I'm looking for the guy that handed them in, I want to thank him", Weirsky said. "I put the tickets down".

He said he plans to buy a Ford Raptor pickup truck and relishes the feeling of being able to go and buy whatever he wants.

Then if he gets permission to "go insane", he plans on taking his family on vacation.

"I always wanted to know what it would be like to be able to just wake up and be able to go somewhere, buy something", he said.

He added that he wants to find the stranger who turned his winning ticket in after he left a Quick Chek in Phillipsburg, rather than taking it, and reward them for their honesty.

"I am just going to sit back and enjoy it", said Weirsky, who could not be reached Friday night.
