Few things become more strange than personal bets. Poker players have been known to bet a year of enhanced breasts if they lose, Governors bet the State product, and un-Godly sums of money pass hands.

Here’s a new one:

World Series champion Royals players Jeremy Guthrie, Drew Butera and Mike Moustakas went on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Wednesday, and with the help of Kansas City native Eric Stonestreet, and Seth Rogan, they nailed Kimmel with paintballs in a bounce house.

Kimmel, a Mets fan, and Stonestreet, a Royals fan, had a friendly bet on the World Series, and the loser had to suffer the wrath of being drilled with paintballs.

The poker player, by the way, measured out at 38’s, I never heard what cup size.

Quiet. Cold. Yesterday night it got down to 31 degrees. I noted that because I’d left the plastic garden hose on the patio. I don’t suppose it matter much because I generally hang the hose in an unheated shed anyhow.

I should just leave it out in the grass like I used to do. It would drain better out there. I caved to a neighbor’s criticism.

Chicago won that MNF game. Totally wrong of them. I pull for the Skins, they lose. I pull for Manning and the Broncos, they lose. I like SD Chargers and pull for them, they lose.

I have a friend, an on-line friend, that, every year, sends me invitations to join various sports pools. Every year I turn him down. I think two things are true: He knows something about me that I know. And, I know the same thing, and how to say Thanks, but no.

I must admit that the temptation is there. I just cannot see myself with breasts, however.

About tenwhiskey

User tenwhiskey is also the author of this blog. He currently lives in small town Kansas in a semi-retired condition. His kids are married and gone (thank you). An empty nester. Divorced. Very happy with life as it is. Ten Mile maintains a personal blog here, writing of events as they appear to him; commentary, and opinions abound. He deviates into fiction as the mood strikes and creates flash fiction stories and short stories. He will not warn the reader when he drifts from fact to fiction. He feels adults are, generally, smart enough to figure out which is which. He does, however, attempt to make his fiction sound as true to life as possible. You have been warned. He, as time permits, writes and occasionally sells writing. More often than not he gives it away to various non-paying publishers of Ether Magazines, forums or for entertainment on a wall for in need of a hand friends. He likes candy, pies and a certain amount of strife. In the matter of strife - in his yourth on the farm, he became embroiled in a slinging fight. The fight involved lath as a launcher, fresh cow patties as ammo and it was a six way free for all. A little mud only adds (Umm?) a certain taste to life.
