Some of my family have accused me of not blogging about silly things I've done. Here's where I teach them that may be a good thing for them:
Al and I had a $1 bet. As we were leaving the optical shop (where he lost the bet), I said "Pay up" and I jokingly hold the dollar on my forehead while waiting for the elevator.
Al: I'll give you $2 to keep that on your forehead the rest of the day.
(get on elevator, man looks at me funny)
(exit building, another man looks at me funny)
Al: I'll give you another $2 if you smile at everyone that looks at you funny
(walk thru parking lot, grinning like an idiot)
(in the car)
Me: Wow, Al, is it going to be worth $4 more of your own money?
Al: No. I'll give you $1 just to buy you out of the plan.
Me: I'm so proud of you for bargain hunting.
(Al throws a dollar at me)
Al: I learned another lesson too. Gambling is stupid.
