I wonder if you are a big gambler?
I remember Dave Nevison saying: ''Bet like a man.''
He certainly did that in his time. Perhaps he still does. Betting like a man is betting with a wad of cash. The only reason I would suggest someone betting full-throttle is if they bet for a living and they know what they are doing.
Else, it's probably a terrible idea.
But each to their own. My £50 is like another person's £500. And their monkey is another person's grand.
So it's all relative in ways.
I feel sorry for that bloke who lives on the edge of Thirsk who has done his cash the last week with his 50p accumulator.
So are you a big gambler?
Big to you may be big big to me or paltry to others. It doesn't really matter.
I see a repeat of a TV programme called Fat Meets Fatter. Where a couple of ladies from the UK met with their bigger counterpart who lived in Mississippi. One of the ladies called Delores.
She made me smile with her chat about being ''fat''. Yes, I know in the world of political correctness such words are turned into their acceptable form (whatever that may be).
But Delores just said it as it is.
In fact, she said she couldn't touch her toes and if she dropped something on the floor she would just leave it there.
In ways, I like her no-nonsense approach to life.
Big gamblers come in every shape and form.
