You Bet Your Ass: Week 3

New, 2 comments

We are all really bad at gambling.

The best part of YBYA this year has been teaching our younger writers how to gamble. Few things feel more magical than instructing teenagers in the art of throwing money away. I'm like a proud papa! Only two of us nine gamblers finished in the black for the week, so maybe don't trust any of us with the deed to your house. Or any of your money. Especially Cain. He may be in the lead, BUT HE CAN NEVER REMEMBER TO SEND IN HIS MONEY BETS ON THE FIRST TRY.
