Could Get Him Killed


         The adult you pretend to be convinces himself that the risk is worth the game, the game worth the risk. Tells himself the choice of lifestyle could get him killed - on the Daytona track, the bull-ring, falling from the raw steel framework forty stories up, catching a rodeo hoof in the side of the head.
