intrusive D (before an R) changes phrases GOOD ONES: Saloon with a no-quipping policy?
ANTI-DROLL BAR ["anti-roll bar": the absurdity of a bar forbidding humor makes me laugh, yet we have no smoking bars, so why not bars prohibiting un-PC quips] Refreshment after winter recreation?
SKATING DRINK ["skating rink": I can see some enterprising marketer selling a "special" drink for hockey players] Way out?
PAROLE [I thought outre
, and come to think of it, PAROLE itself seems odd given a judge passed sentence for a specific time (frame)] Jam cacophony
HORNS [as in a traffic jam, not a jazz jam (which bothers me even more)] Changing places
CABANAS Sport with pins
WRESTLING [took a long while to get bowling out of my mind before I could consider anything else] Like some facts and stuff
HARD [as in both "hard facts" and "hard stuff"] Total
RUIN [same as with WRESTLING, I was thinking "addition"] One in a ball game?
SEER [she uses a crystal ball --- and it is a con(fidence) game] BTW:
Art class focused on river rapids? WHITEWATER DRAFTING [I'd clue it "Hillary's defense"]
Portrait of Donald's life? A DRAKE'S PROGRESS [both the duck and the new pol would work] Juvenile
response I AM SO [if this is juvenile, any insistence is]
Light bite NOSH [still only used by those exposed to Yiddish; there was a franchise in Brooklyn 55 years ago called Bagel Nosh, but [whispered] "they're not good."
Start of the Common Era ONE AD [instead of the AD ("year of the lord") we now have CE, obviating the need to refer to the loathsome deity --- even though calendars are based on the lying sham far below, say, today's vaunted Bill Clinton]
OLD SCHOOL bothers me as much as "Back in the day" probably because I'm old school, and back in the day these expressions did not exist. Go like mad
DASH [a tad overstated for my liking; any quick movement or running could be defined so --- "mad dash" would be more like it]
Steamed veggies, say SIDE [irritating: it should be "side order" or "on the side" lest with our eggs we order a "side of bacon" ]
Three grins = Loved it; Two grins = Enjoyed it; One grin = A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Not much fun
