Why have I become so lazy? In the past, I enjoyed grabbing a dictionary to find a word; now, I just go to the computer. I SHOULD use the dictionary as I recall the enjoyment of looking at OTHER words during a search.
When he had found the word, he said, "EWWWW--I could have lived forever without wanting to know--or needing to know--about UNI!"
UNI: gonads of the sea urchin
I have a friend who swears he LOVES sushi and prefers eel; I believe that he is actually one of those people who thinks he SHOULD like sushi because it's "fashionable".
Several weeks ago, when we were together, at a Japanese restaurant, he ordered sushi, and I asked, "Is that CONGER eel?" As he didn't know the difference between sushi, sashimi, and negiri, I told him, "I shan't trust your opinion on epicurean delights!"
