    The answer can be found in Tennis (Had been watching some Tennis on TV lately.) .
    The one with the advantage would try and score. The one being taken advantage, would attempt to get to deuce....i.e., stay twosome until two additional scores are achieved.

    As they say, in Tennis.... love-all.... love-15, love-30, love-40....but 50 is too old for love....After 40, pretty much the game is over....unless both are 40, and one gets an advantage.

    just slipping the sequence to this (more appropriate) site:
    Get hold of ? OMG.... the President of the United States had said that if one is a celebrity, one can do just that...
    Never Mind...
    <click title of song to hear it on youtube>
    Simon & Garfunkel song:
    Slip slidin' away
    Slip slidin' away
    You know the nearer your destination
    The more you're slip slidin' away
    I know a man, he came from my home town
    He wore his passion for his woman like a thorny crown
    He said "Delores, I live in fear
    My love for you is so overpowering
    I'm afraid that I will disappear"
    Slip slidin' away
    Slip slidin' away
    You know the nearer your destination

    Bonne Fête du Canada!
    Happy Canada Day!​

    If anyone were to wonder why Americans celebrate Canada Day, and the Maple Leaf Flag.... here is a piece of history:
    Calling all Canadian travellers: Get that maple leaf off your backpack

    Excerpt from the above newspaper article:
    It's not hard to spot a Canadian while travelling – he or she is usually the one sporting a giant flag on their luggage or backpack. While other travellers may have other countries' flag patches sewn onto their packs, marking the places they've gone, Canadians are the only people in the world who wear their own flag – and wear it as conspicuously as possible. Having travelled around the world over the last decade, I have been asked countless times why I did not wear one. "You're Canadian, where's the flag on your backpack?" asked hostel owners, fellow travellers, customs agents and airport security.

    The curious practice seems to have begun in the 1970s during the Vietnam War, when popular opinion around the world was against our American lookalikes. It's difficult to find historical literature on the rise of travelling Canadian flag patches (our flag became official only in 1965), but the increase in independent travel among baby boomers during the period likely helped it catch on. When baby boomers became parents, they would pass the ritual on to their own travelling children. That practice has now become ingrained in young Canadians.​

    Americans pretending to be Canadians (with a flag patch on their shirt, jeans, backpack etc..) was a thing during the Vietnam War period. And now... since the election of Trump, it is back in vogue. It is one way, a pretty easy way too, to avoid answering for Trump and USA when you travel abroad.

    Canada Day came and went. No peeps from Canada. However... I got a lot of greetings email from Americans in the last few days. Many of them are nieces and nephews. Not actual relatives but children of friends in the category that I had mentioned before....

    I was preparing a collage to post my before and after pic. But ditched that idea because I am not interested to show my face in IL and also didn't want that thread to turn into a discussion on one's weight.

    But what you have mentioned here has worked in my case.

    Post marriage I lost 10 kgs because I had some issues adjusting to new food, in laws etc. Husband gained 10 kgs.

    Seeing our pic once we were introspecting how this making us look odd and both joined gym . (me to gain a Lil weight and he to lose some weight and for overall well being ) and over a period I gained weight and he lost few kilos and we got a balance(in terms of our weight) .
    But I tell him just because he couldn't lose he made me gain weight.:grin::grin:
