Excerpt from Nineteen Seventy Something
Greg dug deep in the pocket of his wranglers and pulled out a wad of one dollar bills.
"I got twenty eight dollars that says you won't get on any bull of your choice!"
Teddy Knight grinned and spit in the dirt, eying me. I stared toward the bucking chutes and a little smirk came across my face.
"Twenty eight dollars to get on a bull?" I grinned as my eyes twinkled, "Okay, buck-a-roo, let's get it on!"
The rest of the crowd cheered as Greg and Teddy headed toward the chutes with me shuffling along behind, wondering if I'd lost my mind.
Shannon O'Reilly hollered out behind me, "Rusty, you be careful! You ain't no cowboy!"
