WINNERS TRY AND LEARN FROM THE MISTAKES THEY MAKE
The winner vaguely remembers one of the girls saying something about teaching kickboxing at the Y. The winner remembers telling her that even though he had never tried kickboxing before, there was no way a girl would be able to take him down. Winners know that girls lack the kill factor, and they aren’t shy about saying it.
The winner can’t really remember what happened next, but somehow he ended up splayed out on the Trivia Whiz machine, looking down at his bloody tooth. Even winners occasionally forget that doing shots after eating nothing but a bean and cheese burrito all day is not the formula for success. Winners try to learn from the few mistakes they make.
Loser Joe Grant left the winner moaning on the floor while he sucked face with the hot kickboxer, and then had the temerity to drive off without the winner. Joe had driven the winner to Bumpers, because the air-conditioning in the winner’s Toyota Tercel was making that funny noise again.
Losers have no idea how hard it is to find a cab at two o’clock in the morning on a Tuesday night. But winners are resourceful. A winner will limp after an off duty bus for two blocks before giving up the fight. A winner is willing to sleep on a bus bench, only to be woken up by a man in a tin foil hat claiming dibs.
