I had to look it up, too. Good word.

I knew a guy who also suffered when he ate onions. He learnt to say "without onions please" in about a dozen languages before he went on his honeymoon.

BTW, I had to look up two online dictionaries before I found 'agita'. Now I'm going to make it my mission to drop it into a conversation this evening. Thanks.

Hi, Rachel. Welcome to DC.

I agree. "Who cares."

I eat food for its medicinal properties as often as I take pills to satisfy my hunger.

Sweetie, if I could cough up lottery numbers, I'd be in sunny Italy, eating and drinking myself into a stupor daily and in between, racing about the countryside in my Ferrari.

Cough, cough, cough...

Nope, nothing.

okay, that is just way funny. I'm sure there is some logical explanation for it, but since i watched the illusionist last night it's all looks creappy.
