How would you like to win $2 million and not even realize it?

That's exactly what happened to a Colorado man who bought a winning Powerball ticket.  

Paul T., as he is identified, carried the winning ticket around for a week before he realized that he won $2 million.

The ticket was purchased at a King Scoopers grocery store in Littleton.  The winning numbers were: 03, 21, 23, 31, and 59.

Money has been tight for Paul in the last year.  His family has dealt with three major surgeries and he has a child in college.

Paul says he'll continue to work until retirement.

“Staying home will be my retirement,” said Paul who says he may choose a sunny beach to call home.

The grocery store that sold Paul the ticket will receive a $3,000 bonus.
