Edwin loved games of challenge. His favorite was what he liked to call the blinking game. He would stare at his opponent until one of them blinked. He enjoyed winning and hated to lose.
As a child, he stared at adults, other children, dogs, and cats. He especially enjoyed staring at cats until they blinked first.
As a teen, he stared down his teachers. As an adult, he stared down his bosses. He was quite good at it, but often felt unchallenged until he finally met a worthy opponent.
He stared his final opponent in the face and blinked first.

Excellent, Michael. You can't stare down the Big D. Really well constructed. Fooled me until the final line (appropriately).

Well conceived that the twist in the end is past the drabble when you work out the last competitor. Marvelous
