Me: His name is MAD.
Mum: Who would name their dog MAD?!
Me: Aunty J names her dog MAD. Maybe it’s Med or Mac.
Sis: It’s Med.
Me: Lets place our bets then. I bet 50 cents.
Mum: I’ll bet 50 cents too. His name is Mac.
Me: Mum, you have to bet RM50.00.
Sis: Ok. I am sending a text message to confirm the answer. And my bet is, his name is Med. And I bet RM5.00.
While waiting for the results…
Mum: So what happens if I win? You have to pay me RM50.00?
Me: If you win the bet, you get the money from the ‘pool’. Your RM50.00, my 50 cents, and Karen Kow’s RM5.00. Total = RM55.50.
Mum: Then what if you win the bet?
Me: If either Karen Kow or me win the bet – then we get the total sum from the ‘pool’. RM55.50.
Mum: What if none of us are correct?
Me: Then we divide the total in the ‘pool’ amongst the 3 of us, but of course!
Simultaneously; Karen Kow snorts. Mum chokes on her food. And I almost laugh myself in to a heart attack.
I love setting the rules!
And the winner? Karen Kow. The dog’s name is MED.
