Odd/odds and evens etc.
Odd, of course, is a well-known adjective for strange or unusual, but odd, as in an odd number, means an uneven number i.e. one that is not divisible by two. Both these meanings date from about the mid-1500s. They are related but not quite the same as other meanings for odd, for example, as in an 'odd job' or to have 'the odd drink now and again'. These usages are 'odd' in the sense of not conforming to a regular pattern or habit, and hence take on the meaning of non-standard or occasional. Hence, an 'odd lot' is a non-standard jumble of items, as an 'odd bin' is a non-stanadrd collection of wine. These usages dates from the mid-18th century. Odd can also mean 'approximately' as in ‘two hundred odd’. This usage is also cited from the mid-18th century.
