If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again! Learn how in this episode. Slow dialog: 1:23 Explanations: 3:24 Fast dialog: 16:10 Carl: Come on, let’s go. I have $500 burning a hole in my pocket. Shelly: Where are we going? Carl: We’re going to the track. I have a tip on a sure thing for one of this afternoon’s races. This is exactly what I need after last week’s setback. Shelly: You mean after losing all of your money last week. Carl: Right, but all I need to do is to get that monkey off my back and then I’ll have a reversal of fortune. Winning big this afternoon will be the start of a new winning streak. Shelly: Maybe what happened last week is really a sign of things to come. Maybe it was the start of a losing streak. Carl: Don’t jinx me with that kind of negativity. I’ve always believed that when you meet with a setback, come back with all you’ve got. Shelly: Does that mean what I think it means? Carl: Yes, that’s right. I’m plunking down all $500 on that race. I can’t lose. Shelly: But what if – Carl: Don’t say another word. When I win and get back in my stride, you can say, “Congratulations!” Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
