    1. In my family we brushed our teeth with Crest, we downed delicious cans of incomparably viscous Campbell's Cream of Mushroom Soup (maybe I should reverse the order of those two), we drank Tang and ate at Burger King and Roy Rogers, we puttered around in Chryslers and Volkswagens, and when we were perplexed by a new word we turned to American Heritage.

    7. I use it often. Grammar, spelling, and usage nerd. Thank you Mrs. Vido, my amazing high school English teacher. You changed my life for the better and I think of you with gratitude often.

    9. My preferred dictionary, even though the 4th edition has cut out most of the etymology that made the 3rd edition great.
