Hooked on a Feelin’

If Phillip takes some medicine, he might start to feel better.  If he’s trying to find something in the couch cushions, taking off the gloves will help him feel better.  If he owns a rocky plot of land, and he sells it, and purchase a lush meadow wherein grows daffodils, you might say that he’s gained a field better.  In the casino, if he goes with his gut might be called a feel better; but if he makes several bad wagers, you might say that he has begun to feel-bet err.  If he begins to mistrust his own judgement, and seeks the advice of his foolish companions, they might tell him, “Phil, bet ‘er.”  If he runs out of money and wagers the daffodilian meadow, he might be called a field better.  If he is an inappropriately forward and rude fellow, he’s likely to be kicked out because he feels betters.  If your’e a second baseman, getting your body in front of the ball might help you field better.  But if Phil charges onto the infield to strangle the winning pitcher, against whom he has wagered, you might be called upon to field the better.  Having run out of money, and searching for a silver lining, Phil might think of his success in the couch-searching from yesterday, take a little license, and say that he took off the gloves and feeled better.  Going to the fridge in search of a drink, he may find only a full gallon of milk, which he wishes to decant into a coke bottle, and employing a funnel will help him fill better.  And lastly, when Phil cannot pay his debts to the casino, he might be thrown in jail, and the jailer will call upon a blacksmith to …(wait for it) …bield fetters.
