Flip Side

Quotations
Quote of the Day


If something goes wrong or you have a decision to take that is not looking so good, then you might like to consider the flip side - what could happen and is usually a better or more cheery occurrence.

The origin of this phrase is disputed, but many believe that contrary to more poetic versions written elsewhere, it does have old origins relating to coins, which for a long time have had two different sides.

We all know that if you toss or flip a coin it could come heads or tails, well the flip side is what happens on the other side of the coin.
