Yesterday Spain lost to Switzerland 1-0. And suddenly my coworker claims we never really made the bet!

Last time I ever bet against him.

I was thinking of your bet when I saw that yesterday.

you'll have to read him the Wizard's 10 commandments. Print em up maybe and lay them on his desk. He can't escape I wouldnt think, and would regret the torture I would be giving him.

I hoped Spain would win. That way I'd ahve offered to raise the stakes. So maybe it all worked out for the best.

Woulnd't do any good. This guy makes up reality as he goes along.

I suppose I could amke sure ther eare witnesses next time we amke a bet, and to write it down and sign the paper. But what for? If he weasles out of a small bet at the first sign of trouble, he's very unlikely to ever pay anyway.

Wait a sec...

You knew that, and you didn't get the bet on paper?
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? 😁 Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition. 🤗

Hmmmm.....


Spain lost their first game but ended up winning the whole thing.


Seems like you may have dodged a bullet here!
