I know! I detested it myself. …but you know what? I’m trying to disassociate myself from any words like that to gambling, if that makes sense?
I thought it would be a bit controversial, and probably very selfish of me to use it for my own purposes, but I was thinking the other day. ..how many times do I hear the phrase “I bet”?
My friends and family all constantly say things like bet it’s going to rain, or bet you won’t ring, or bet you won’t this, or that. My standard answer used to be. ..bet I will!
Now, another phrase I hear often is “what’s the odds on that? “! Or the word “lucky” even. All these everyday words which I used to associate with gambling, I want to fade into words of non meaning ….even jackpot …believe me I’ve been chasing the wrong one for years!
