now, the voa special english program, words and their stories.

many people believe that money makes the world go around. others believe that money buys happiness. i do not agree with either idea. but i do admit that money can make people do strange things. let me tell you about a person i once knew who liked to play card games for money. he liked to gamble.

my friend bob had a problem because he liked to gamble at all costs. he would play at any time and at any price. to take part in a card game such as poker, my friend would have to ante up. he would have to pay a small amount of money at the beginning of the game.

bob always played with cold, hard cash --onlycoins and dollar bills. sometimes my friend would clean up. he would win a lot of money on one card game. he liked to tell me that one day he would break the bank. what a feeling it must be to win all of the money at a gambling table!

other times my friend would simply break even. he neither won nor lost money. but sometimes bob would lose his shirt. he would lose all the money he had. he took a beating at the gambling table. when this happened, my friend would have to go in the hole. he would go into debt and owe people money.
