I have the advantage!"Or else you answer, taking the blow: "Have it. While you're admiring it I sneak around you and into your home where your husband's sleeping, drawing my knife. I have the advantage!"The action, the raise, was about the ring. The advantage may not having anything to do with the ring at all.
QuoteBad habit 4: limiting consequences to the mechanical- From now on, whenever anybody gets exhausted or injured, have the winner describe how. It must fully account for genuine exhaustion or a serious injury, so keep prodding until it does; otherwise, no input from anybody, especially the loser.Me: Nah, I'd rather be exhausted or injured.Mitch: Okay, exhausted. You sail away but I'm behind you. We chase through the archipelago for four days, and finally I corner you on some rocky barren island. You're starving and bone-weary from the chase.Me: Crap, dude.
