Are you a gambler?
I’m not a very good one, although I do admit I love to play the slot machines whenever I get the opportunity.
I’m a fairly predictable gambler though. I put $20 in the machine and when the money is gone, I’m done. If I happen to win, I cash out, put the original $20 back in the machine and play again.
I don’t understand sports statistics, handicaps and how bookies figure out odds.
I do know however, that if the Vegas bookies were hosting an event in my neck of the woods and they actually went as far as to bet on certain events happening on one of Sampson, Delilah and my walks, somebody, somewhere would be making money.
These results are based on a three-month period. if you were a gambling person and had bet on one of these events, the payoff would have been something like this:
The odds that your dog squats to poop and you try to maneuver the leash so as not to get poop on it and during your manipulation, the leash swings across your dog’s butt just as that little brown friend pops its head out? 1 chance out of 90.
The odds that a spider having the option of building a web at any height between two forty (plus) foot trees, will build at face height, so it brushes across your mouth or face as you walk through it? 75 chances out of 90.
A dog who cannot cover her poop with dirt from twenty feet away, can manage to get dirt in your face, as you bend down to pick up that poop? 2 chances out of 90.
That the same dog, (still covering poop) can manage to get dirt anywhere on you or the other dog you are walking with? 6 chances out of 90.
You bend down to wipe a leaf off your dog’s face and it’s really part of a spider web that sticks to your fingers and freaks you out? 1 chance out of 90.
Yes dear friends, all of the above have happened to me (some more frequently than others) on one of our recent walks.
If you were a betting soul and had bet on one of our walks, you’d be sitting pretty right now.
What types of things could you bet on during one of your walks?
