Risk Taking Ladies
By Handsum-Hart

To get rewards in life
Risks must be taken

Tiny were the risks, lady #1 took
So small were the rewards she received

Moderate were the risks, lady #2 took
So average were the rewards she received

None were the risks, lady #3 took
So zero rewards did she received

Great were the risks, lady #4 took
So outstanding were the rewards she received

I asked a lady friend of mine
As you look at your life
Which number are you

And without saying a word
She curled up in the fetal position
And started to cry

And this made me so sad
Because even though she was crying
Zero droplets of water
Was falling from her eyes
And this causing me, to say to myself
"She must be #3
Because not even her eyes
Will reward her with a single tear"

So ladies, which number are you?

Ronald Howard Moman

What a good question there! What we are and what we'd like to be! - I'm a number two and would like to be a number four althought I know I'm number one not your number one but my own number one.

I am a #4, to be sure. I have a strong belief in self and I take risks when I know I must to get my rewards. Life is short, I believe you have to go full throttle if you wish to get all the things you aspire to before time and ability run out. A lot of prayer doesn't hurt one bit either!!
Take care,

I'm definitely a #4 and damn proud of it. Anything less is...well less. Why bother leaving the house if you can't get it together. ROFL

Seriously, you have some great insights into the human condition. This analogy can also apply to men. Living, itself, is a risk in today's world.
