Someone who by any definition has the Midas touch?
I personally don’t, but I have a friend who’s cousin is apparently the belle at every ball. He’s an academic high-achiever, popular with the ladies and on the local football team (something of a rising star, or so I’m told).
This guy doesn’t seem to put a foot wrong. Once (and I was there for this) he gambled on two outside bets (and I mean the odds were wayyyyyyyyy long) but he still won on both counts. We went round the book-keepers to collect, however, he wasn’t exactly in the mood to pay up (some rather dodgy dealing, unfortunately). Two of his heavies came to escort us out, and I remember thinking that the only thing I wanted to do was to get the hell outta there as fast as I could. So Golden Boy wants his money, and he throws a chair out of a window in a fit of rage to make his point.
What transpires next is remarkable. One guy comes up behind him to grab him by the neck, and so Golden B. swings his hand backwards rolled up into a fist (like a fisted bitchslap). The guy slumps to the floor bleeding at the mouth (I really don’t know but he looked unconcious - by this time I had totally wet my pants - or almost just.)
The second guy he just punches in the face before he can even think about it, and “whammo!”… he almost flies into another table. He turns to the book-keeper and sort of strikes a pose as he’s to his side. He half-lifts his eyebrow, gesturing like, “are you gonna pay up?”
About half an hour later we’re out of there, money and all.
This guy isn’t really even particularly huge (well built and 6’0). But he just commands a presence. I don’t really know him and I’ve only met him the once (yeah, that was the only time). Other than the stories emanating about him though, I can’t think of a single person who is a global winner like he is.
The closest I can is a guy who’s good at his studies and sports, but really a loser with girls and pretty much everything else. There are a few women who are confident and cool, but not supercool.
Do you know anybody like this - the kind that the car just opens on demand for, that the opposite sex just flings off, that managers just beg to give a job to etc. …
Do you know any constant winners, who are so cool it seems as though they were manufactured in some sort of “winners” laboratory?
