I've just remembered, back in April 2008, I placed a bet on Obama to win the presidency. This was before Hillary Clinton withdrew, but she had long since stopped being the presumptive candidate. So I didn't get good odds. I only got odds of 5/6, so I have £9.17 to collect (on a £5 stake). I'd forgotten to collect.
Still, I've remembered now, and have one almost enough profit for a celebratory Grande Tazo Chai tea latte and a Cinnamon Swirl from Starbucks.
I'm feeling wealthy now.
