Risk (Writing task)

This is the continuation of the writing tasks that I am doing as part of being involved in a writers group of ex-pats while living in Buenos Aires. This weeks topic was risk, and I am a risk averse person, so here's my take.



The taking of a risk for a risk averse person is only done after much planning, a lot of forethought and a number of attempts at removing said risk.By the time the risk is taken, it almost seems as though there is nothing that could possibly go wrong, and the act of taking a risk reduced to a few simple formulas all with known outcomes. Serendipity still seems to have the last word though, it is the constant in the formula you never bothered to find the real magnitude of because you mistakenly believed it to be insignificant.
