Our #WOTD is something that you might be planning to do tomorrow on Independence Day games: “Tug-o-war”!
It can also be written as “tug of war”.
There are 2 meanings to the word:
1. A game where two teams pull against each other at the end of a rope.
2. A struggle between 2 people/groups to win control/possession over something.
Here are how to use it in a sentence:
1. In 1997, my father was part of the team who won the tug-o-war world championship.
(Yes, there is a tug-o-war world championship, you can watch it in Youtube)
2. Since the election failed, the outgoing preident is getting tangled in a tug-o-war game with his successor.
Election = pemilihan umum
Outgoing president = presiden yang akan turun jabatan
Successor = penerus
That’s all for today, fellas. If you are gearing up for a game tomorrow, don’t forget to take enough rest!
