Adversaries But . .

They are adversaries but:
  • They will only push so far because they sense a day may arise when a reluctant but worthy ally will be needed;
  • Each secretly admires the other;
  • They've grown to enjoy the sparring more than they could ever savor a total victory;
  • They serve as an unpaid Total Quality Management consultant for one another;
  • They don't take it personally;
  • Their jousts are carefully choreographed for the education of their staffs;
  • If they didn't have an adversary they would have to invent one.
