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.
roaches of the liver
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!
