Put Your T.shirt Where Your Mouth Is!!

I lost a bet I held with a guy from work when Sri Lanka lost to Australia in the cricket. He and I have a healthy rivalry between us as to who is the better team. So, when he started to give me sh#%^ about the Sri Lankan cricket team I said to him "I bet they will win when they play against Australia". He said something along the lines of "no, they won't".

Me: "I hope they get a chance to play against each other".

Him: "Yeah, Australia will win, let's bet".

Me (getting annoyed): "Yeah, let's".

Him: "What do you like to drink".

(There is a custom at work that every stuff up you make ensures that you owe a carton).

Me: "No, let's make it more interesting than that, I'll think about what we should bet and let you know".

Him: "Okay".

I thought about what would be good, and decided that if Sri Lanka won, he would have to wear a Sri Lanka cricket team T.shirt for a whole swing at work (morning, evening, and in the lunch room). We agreed to this and he decided that if Australia win I would wear a T.shirt (which he would have to make) which said "Murali's a chucker" (or something equally as horrible), ie. "I love Shane Warne".

So, I'm kinda dreading going back to work to see this T.shirt.

Please, feel sorry for me.

Jack Handy Thought For The Day: Why do people in ship mutinies always ask for "better treatment"? I'd ask for a pinball machine, because with all that rocking back and forth you'd probably be able to get a lot of free games.
