Born to whim

As they say, whimming isn’t everything. Some you whim, some you lose. For most people, losing is such an undesirable option and whimmers are grinners, because everybody loves a whimmer. At least for a cliche enriched subject, you’re on a whimmer. The extremes of the ambitious are played out in the realm of the contest. Elation if you win, despair if you fail. Nobody remembers a second place whimmer. A quitter never whims and a whimmer never quits. Whim at any cost. Play to whim !
Or you can take the middle ground, the path of the truly whimsical, amused but detached in succeeding, and equally unperturbed and content if success eludes you. Relish the contest, enjoy the journey, That’s how to be first past the whimming post.
