...you just have to throw caution to the wind and step right off the precipice. Sometimes life is a huge gamble, with horrible risks. You find yourself at the table, with your cards in your hand, and the only way to see the other person's hand it to throw in your chips and call.

It's hard to call sometimes. You look at those chips, all hard won and more precious than gold, and wonder if you're doing the right thing. Call on the wrong hand, you've lost it all. Call on the right hand, and sometimes you still lose, just not at that moment.

My chips are on the table, the cards are in my hand. I call.

I would kill to know wtf you are talking about. I'm clueless...but it sounds rilly, rilly juicy.

Wasn't it Kenny Rogers that said, "You've got to know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em, know when to walk away and know when to run."

Sometimes, you fold, sometimes you call. Sometimes you win big and sometimes you lose huge, but you'll never know unless you play the game.

Good luck

Potentially more painful than juicy, Queenie.

I'd draw the line at a red had with a purple bra, though.
