Default Won an awesome bet against SWMBO!!!

So SWMBO decided that she wanted to make a bet on our NCAA Brackets and I agreed. The bet is as follows:

She wins, I have to do laundry, dishes, and clean the bathroom for one month.

I win, she has to clean all of my beer bottles for one month, roughly 75 sitting under my sink at this time.

As of last night, all 4 of my teams remain, and only 1 of hers, i think it is safe to say

I WIN

No you don't. You'll get your bottles cleaned, but you didn't win.

He still has a parlay left. After his teams win, tell her it's okay, he'll clean the bottles himself. That'd give him about an 80% chance of winning.

I'll tell ya - if you REALLY want to win - Make her clean the bottles BUT do the laundry, dishes, and clean the bathroom for a month and you will be rewarded for a long long time.

Seriously - this is an outstanding opportunity.

Probably one of the truest things I've ever heard.

I know I didn't win, but I don't have to clean my bottles!

Even if she washes the bottles, are you going to be sure they are clean? Wash her sweaters with your boxers and you'll wish to hell you never made this bet.
