Nonline Dictionary

I was so excited to have saved fiive dollars on a paperback dictionary that I shared my delight with a group of friends over veggiie omlettes at the Hawk's Perch. A friend who resembles a small neurotic dog barked "A dictionary? Why can't you just look things up on the web??"
You mean those online dictionaries that were created with YEARS of scholarship and research?

One of the pleasures of looking up an entry in a paper dictionary is that I get lost on the way.
