Euche

Euche (yoo’-kay): A vow to keep a promise.

ME: I promise to keep my promise to you.

YOU: But what about your promise to keep your promise?

ME: I promise to keep my promise to keep my promise to you.

YOU: But what about your promise to keep your promise to keep your promise to keep your promise?

ME: The hell with it. You’re just going to have to trust me.
