A Safe Bet

I'm willing to bet a year's supply of gourmet dog food against your oldest child that the article you will find here is among the very best personal story writing you have ever encountered on the net. There's no way I can loose, so please just pack up your kid without further complaint and send him or her to me to work at exploitative wages in my personal gold mines. My accountant thanks you.

Nice story.

Have you ever seen the movie, "My Bodyguard"? It's not as hokey as the movie poster might imply.

If not, you may enjoy it. Netflix probably has it.

Adam Baldwin is one of the protagonists. It was his first role that eventually led to Jayne Cobb and Firefly.

I'll see you for that kid and raise you a dog that you'll like it.

I haven't seen that one, Ted, but I'm putting it on my list. Do you have a particular breed in mind?

I was expecting something dreary - thank God it ended up alright... this Joe character reminds me of Russel Crowe in the movie L.A Confidential.

The story was good, but I would write something similar if anything like that ever happened to me... fortunately, it hasn't and if it means fewer well written articles, I'd like to keep it that way.
