Win Some, Lose Some

6478272A-E4AF-45C0-B6E5-C5C8B557431EYes, it’s early in the morning and I haven’t had my coffee yet and my eyes are not quite ready to work right. Apparently my brain isn’t either.

I say this because, when I first saw today’s one-word prompt, “winsome,” all I could think of was “win some, lose some.”

And that’s ridiculous because “winsome” is one word and “win some,” while having the exact same letters as “winsome,” is two words with a space separating “win” from “some.”

Further, the word “winsome” means sweetly or innocently charming. For example, “She has such a winsome look about her.”

Whereas the two words, “win” and “some” are what you want to do when you go to Las Vegas or engage in arguments.

Or it may be something you say to someone who just failed at something. Like to a lawyer who just lost a court case or a doctor whose patient died. ‘Sorry, pal, but as they say, you win some and you lose some.”

Or, when responding to the WordPress one-word prompt, “winsome.”

    Your post made me think about Al Pacino’s Inch By Inch speech from Any Given Sunday where he said, “we can stay here and get the shit kicked out of us or we can fight our way back into the light. We can climb out of hell. One inch, at a time. … Cause we know when we add up all those inches that’s going to make the fucking difference between WINNING and LOSING between LIVING and DYING.”

      I do remember that movie, but not that particular speech. Interesting. They always say that football is a game of inches.

    If it makes you feel any better I too mistook it for win-some.
