    It's a wishful thinking though. 8)
    I would say that hitting it big on five lottery tickets in one week is wishful thinking indeed. (No need for the article (a).)

    So I presume party is not his cup of tea. Right?
    Well, When it rains, it pours can have a positive meaning as well, like the one you mentioned. :D

    Let's say I'm looking for a job, and it's been two months now that I can't seem to find a job, then, all of a sudden I get four phone calls from four companies asking me to interview with them. With a smile, I'd shout,

    "When it rains, it pours!" :D

    In other words, when something gets started, watch out, because it's going to hit full force. That's its nature. Just like rain, right?

    All the best,
    I agree with you. The expression is used more frequently for bad events, but the positive use is not rare. :wink:
