I agree with those two. I might add that most of life is taking a chance. It is when we fail after taking a chance, that we actually realize we took a chance. The rest we seem to take for granted. We take a million chances a day without giving it a second thought, so we pass it off as life. Anything we do without fear of rejection, or fear of dying, or fear of taking another breath is just a chance we took, but also took for granted. For example, you can sit and talk to a guy for 3 minutes, without giving it a second thought. He takes your credit card, he prepares your food, and you drive away from the drive-thru only worrying that they stiffed you for your fries. You drive along munching your poison happily and stop at a red light. The guy in the car next to you smiles at you. You blush and can't speak. Why was it easy to talk to a geek at McDonald's and trust him to put food in your mouth and not charge anything to your credit card number that he just copied, but you are afraid to even give Sancho in the Nissan a little wave? McDonald's was a chance you take for granted. Let down your guard and wave at Sancho - take that chance and the next time you smile at Sancho, it too, will never again feel like a chance.
Very Very clever and true write
As I said in another comment awhile ago to someone else
Life is one big game of chance
We have to take chances in order to move forward
we never truly fail when taking a chance because the knowledge learned from taking that chance helps us move forward
I really like how you cleverly show that life is a game of chance
