CHUCK

Chuck keeps his girlfriend’s photo in the clear plastic window in his wallet. Calls her whenever his plane arrives when he’s traveling on business. Waxes his own car. Golfs with his boss, carries his own clubs. He never wins, but not because he plans it that way. He’s played poker on the third Tuesday of every month with the same four friends for five years. Told me “life doesn’t get any better than this” unless he could play professional basketball. That’s his one regret – being 5’10”. But he wins most poker nights. Never bets real cash. They keep it friendly.
