You Wanna Bet?

I have noticed that most people especially those in marital relationships have a system on how they deal with those unwanted tasks or disagreements that come up usually on a daily basis...
- Who is going to take out the garbage?
- You think bathroom has NOT been cleaned. He thinks it has.
- Lets get Mexican for dinner. I'd like Chinese.
- I think your pregnant. No, I'm not.

So what is a fail proof way to quickly alleviate any further discussion?
Rock Paper Scissors of course.

But for some reason rock paper scissors is not mine and Trevor's go to system.
We are daredevils! we live our lives on the edge, major risk takers! or we just really like rewards. (and probably in my case I am enjoy being right all the time). So as very important situations arise when we have differentiating answers/ideas/opinions we put a healthy wager on the table. 

For example:

Ape: "I think my bellybutton is going to pop out."
Trev: "Let me see. No, I don't think it will. It still has a long way to go."
Ape: "So do I, and she is just going to get bigger in there. I'm kind of amazed it hasn't popped out yet. And look, when I pull on the sides it pokes out. It's only a matter of time."
Trev: "Yeah but your bellybutton right now still has a hole and even when you pull on it it's soft. It won't pop out."
Ape: "Do you want to bet?"

Like I said, we only reserve the betting for very serious matters.

Unfortunately this conversation happened a few weeks ago and I my bellybutton still has not popped out (the crazy thing is I really don't want it to, but I want to win... man life it tough).

But then I was talking to my mom the other day about popped out bellybuttons and she said:
 "Bellybuttons don't usually pop out if you had belly fat before you were pregnant."
Thanks for always telling it like it is mom.
So I guess it's safe to say Trevor will win this one and I won't get a romantic date night and he will get the fuel pump for his dune buggy.
