One of my students wrote this phrase in an essay: "a once and a lifetime

chance." That's the kind of chance that I want to happen upon.

I just discovered Pullet Surprise in Fromkin and Rodman and so was pleased to

recognize the term in the recent discussion and delighted to learn about the

demise of Lady Mondegreen. It reminded me of a medical journal article that

listed some of the self-diagnosed illnesses of emergency room patients.

Very-close veins

roaches of the liver

sick-as-hell anemia

are all I can recall. I have a new one from my neighbor, though. He was

telling me about someone suffering from oldtimer's disease. Makes sense to me!
