    Default meanings ?

    I don't understand these sentences below, I need your help.

    1. no argument there
    2. I may as well get used to it
    3. If I thought that there was a chance that you would forgive me , I
    may have chosen differently

    4. you deal with it and move on
    5. it's still raining , that makes it four days in a row
    6.words and speeches sound great, but they don't add up to anything
    7. "Joker " is "poker " with "J" (or with "p" , sorry, I don't remember clearly)


    I appreciate your help!

    1. no argument there
    I agree with you. That's why I am not going to argue.

    2. I may as well get used to it
    There's nothing I can do about it. Thus, I may as well admit that.

    3. If I thought that there was a chance that you would forgive me , I may have chosen differently
    I could use a bit more context there.

    4. you deal with it and move on
    Don't let the matter disturb you. Don't become fixated on it.

    5. it's still raining , that makes it four days in a row
    It had rained for three straight days. Now it is raining for a fourth day, making it four straight days it has rained.

    6.words and speeches sound great, but they don't add up to
    anything
    Actions speak louder than words. Deeds are more important than words.

    7. "Joker " is "poker " with "J" (or with "p" , sorry, I don't remember clearly)
    If you say so. :wink:

    Actually, I'm not sure what that one means. More context might help.

    Thanks for the wonderful questions.

    :D
