    Dictionary Definitions

    Not So Much Agony

    Yeah! Love words. I learned to drag them around as a child; I’d line them up one behind the other, building phrases like blocks until they expressed just exactly what I was feeling. I didn’t use them aloud for a while because people would laugh at my...
