A painful disease, clinical depression, that if it is ever discussed is done so in lowered tones

A pronounced preference for the real thing

A long, tall mound of steaming dark-brown, almost black soil

Okay, maybe just a little . . . bloodthirsty

Language is always in flux

Donald Trump is not normally a name that would turn up in The Star

Out of the doghouse and onto a plane

There are so many things to do on my honey-do list
