Was I going to have a tequila hangover in the morning? Oh, honey, you bet your sweet ass I was. And how many fucks did I give?Not a one."Even if you were overreacting to read what you read into this guy's offer—which I don't think you were, though I doubt he actually thought it through enough to intend it to be read that way—you still have to ask yourself: What's in it for you, hanging around some motel room waiting for a married man to make a booty call?

He might not have meant it to be an insulting offer, but it was absolutely a one hundred percent selfish offer. There was no upside for you whatsoever, unless the sex really was just that amazing."

To hell with that," he said, "shake the tree and knock the great sloth down on his ass."

"Too big to fail" is aconcept that perpetuates failure and saps vitality from the rest of thewealth creators to do so."
