We know many students whose head is as empty as a full dinner pail in Russia. Prof. Coulson: What is a synonym? S. Fish: Why, that's the stuff they put on buns. She didn't think of him all the time. But whenever she thought, she thought of him. He: Haven't I met you somewhere before? I don't seem to recognize you. She: I'm sorry that I have this long coat on. Mary had a little dress A dainty bit, and airy; It didn't show the dirt a bit, But, gosh, how it showed Mary! In Albania when a person shakes his head he means yes.
