Harp: So now, Jessie what’s another meaning for guts?
Jessie: Well another meaning for the word guts is as a synonym for courage or bravery. So you could say that someone has a lot of guts, that doesn’t mean they have a lot of organs, it means they have a lot of courage.
Harp: So an example could be when someone goes in front of all their friends and they sing a song. It takes a lot of guts to sing in front of people.
Jessie: Yeah, it definitely takes a lot of guts. Or the people who compete on TV shows, to see who’s the best singer, that takes a lot of guts.
Harp: For sure. They’re very courageous, brave people.
Jessie: Exactly. Now, you can say that someone has a lot of guts or you can say that someone is gutsy. And that means the exact same thing.
