Re: For Sheila

Ha ha.....and if I told you she's not as good a dancer as I am, would you believe me? (You'd be dead wrong if you did!)

I had learned years ago that Sheila is also an Indian name, and means "a person of good character." [more]

Or if someone says a word like "fanciful", I can't tell if they are going to stop at "fancy" or continue.

Re: Staring at a word for too long...

For all the world, the subjective impression I cannot escape is that my mind understands the word from the very beginning.

Re: Staring at a word for too long...

It's definitely happened to me. Sometimes it's with a written word. More often it's a spoken word, saying it over and over until the meaning suddenly departs, and it becomes an anonymous grouping of letters and sounds -- and it makes me laugh to [more]

Re: irrationally placed hyphens

I don't know what makes someone a "risk patient" but this is for patients in that category who have recently consumed a large amount of marijuana.

Re: book "A Mind of Your Own"

D3 is the form of vitamin D that we end up with as the final step when it's the result of sun exposure. D2 is an earlier step in the process, and a much less efficient way to supplement because it has to be transformed to D3. The prescription D, made [more]
