Re: Lost a personal thing to a friend?
Lay the cards on the table and try your damnedest to find it.
Taking this one on the chin will sting but trying to deceive your way out will be two in the chest one in the head for that friendship.
Explain, you cannot find..... You aren't going to give up until you figure it out. If you cannot figure it out you are going to whatever you have to do to make it right. Then once you explain it follow through. Life does this to us all the time but if you persist through the tough with your integrity intact you will find that even in failure you may triumph.
Learn to be a better person not a better player.
