Two things, and I like them both.

“A Shot In The Dark” is when you add a shot of espresso to black coffee. It is strong and delicious and risky. It could ruin regular coffee for you by making it seem too weak. Consume with caution.

One way that Webster of the Merriam variety defines a shot in the dark is as “an attempt that is not likely to succeed.” I appreciate these wild attempts. I love hearing the stories of successes and failures. I am pausing right now from writing a letter of recommendation for a student applying for a very competitive scholarship. Some of the applicants will have a G.P.A. over 5.0. The over 5.0 G.P.A business, in my opinion anyway, is annoying and stupid. For most students applying, receiving this scholarship is certainly a shot in the dark.

Many great success stories begin with shots in the dark. Start shooting.
