Everyone has a different version of what is fair and unfair. When you all watch all the shows on the TV that are contests, do you believe the judges are biased?  Many years ago that was the way it went particularly in beauty contests. They were often rigged with bribes.  It was extremely unfair to the other participants as they worked hard to win.  This was also true in baking contests. There is even a baking show on the Hallmark channel about people cheating, passing so another person could win and more. As we were growing up, we frequently thought it was unfair if we were short, couldn’t keep our weight under control, not as smart as other students, less athletic, etc. I was and still am short.  I was not even remotely athletic but it didn’t bother me.  We had to wear ugly navy blue uniforms om gym at school. There was one girl that would sympathize with me during our playing of field hockey, basketball, softball, etc. outside primarily as the weather was usually chilly. I actually play the word game with her today which we both enjoy. Her granddaughter is a true star in softball.  We didn’t think anything was unfair except the ugly uniforms.  The only sport I was reasonable at was racquetball.  I did use a racquet, though. When thinking about various events in life, if an event was unfair, it is best to forget about it.  It’s just not worth it. The Good Gus Series is available online at Kindle, Nook and Waterstones.
