Taking Chances & Risks

“Necessity is the mother of “taking chances” Mark Twain

“No noble thing can be done without risks” Michel de Montaigne

Have you ever ducked, dodged and prayed through a piñata event? I mean the type that has everyone standing within three feet of the kid with the stick. In a barn, a small back yard, a covered patio or in a basement even. Yes, these are exciting events especially if your own kid’s dental work is at stake during the event. That is the classic risk-reward event that only a kid would temp. An adult might think it through too much…say from a risk management, liability, danger, insurance deductible point of view. Hence the opportunity for being silly, being humiliated, getting cold cocked is lost. A shame when you think of it. I now think life is too short, put on the blindfold, grab the stick and swing with reckless abandonment! Some adults, from my personal observations, appear to view this game as a way of culling out the weak ones from the family lineage/violent/.
