Let me be straight with you: I know your winning cards were the result of cheating. Now, I do not have the heart to tell your mother, even though you certainly deserve to have her club you upside the head. On the other hand, I feel you are in a bit of a royal mess now that your swindling has reached my awareness. I do not wish to engage in chantage; your winnings are not desired in my pockets. But, I do have a leaky tub at home and if you could caulk the break and, as well, clean up the sullage, I would consider letting this infraction be forgiven as long as you promise this will be the last time. Please use the postern when you come over, though, because Arthur takes naps by the front door and is prone to bleeding ankles when his dreams are disturbed. And, if I do catch you on the other side of honest street ever again, I will neuter you with a cooter and, then, have you spayed with a spade. You like that quip, huh? Well, I am quite serious: do not flush away your integrity for cash. Diamonds are hard, but remaining principled can be even harder. Think, then, about how prized are diamonds and, hence, how much more priceless you are when you remain straight not just with others, but especially with yourself. ; )
