I took a chance on my computer today when I turned it on. It is on the fritz again. I don't think it likes it when I go on vacation. :)
I took a chance when I married Pan. Although I knew him quite well as my sister's best friend, until you actually start living with someone you really don't know them. The first night home from our honeymoon, I was convinced I had married a serial killer when I woke up to him jumping on the bed brandishing a machete. Actually he was after a cockroach (hey, we grow them big here). After 20 years I'm glad I didn't bolt out right away.
