the fresh risking of an original stake together with its winnings
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.
