Re: my husband loves the verb 'to thrive'. I learned today the word: 'tame', 'taming'. I am using only one crutch.
In Star Trek, its Warp Factor this or that.

I always all the time I use the dictionary. I wouldn't use it if you are just 'in front of me', cause THAT would sign that I consider you 'dead', which you are not. I need live contact as much as anyone. Here you and I have a somehow 'real' contact, let's not spoil it, : )
Got it ? ;)
