DP: The Happy Side Effect

the fresh risking of an original stake together with its winnings

via Parlay | Definition of Parlay by Merriam-Webster

Daily Prompt the lure, ‘parlay’ dangled in this morning’s waters. I took the bait.  I was hooked, strung along, reeled in and gutted, exposing my ignorance.  I turned to the dictionary to refine my understanding.

‘Parlay’ stuck on me after seeing Robert De Niro  in the movie “Silver Linings Playbook” (2012). He and others used ‘parlay’ many times.  I had a vague understanding, but the word was a stranger still.

So thank you, DP, for snagging me this morning.  Now back to open waters.
