posted: 10/24/2016 1:50 a.m. Comment 1

I decided to write a column about highfalutin words and phrases, so I thought I had better look up "highfalutin" in the dictionary. I had never used the word in writing before.

So I'm happy to have learned something today (though undoubtedly I'll forget a half dozen other things).
