Benny Samson walked up to Kendall and Jamie just as they were about to leave the school yard. “I want to hire you guys to help me win the big chili contest on Saturday.”
“Help you win?” Kendall asked.
“Yeah,” Benny said. “I know my chili recipe is better than Jerry Smart’s, but only if we cook fair.”
