    Welcome to Charleston, though it sounds like you’ll be heading out soon. You picked the right place for Shrimp and Grits – only place better is at our table – my wife’s is the best.

    So what’s a ditransitive bverb, anyway? I could go for an herbaceous cupcake (wonder what was in it??) myself.

    Is “herbaceousness” a desirable quality in a cupcake?

    I would probably hope for that more in a salad.

    I am looking forward to the third volume coming out. Is there a prediction as to when the book will be available?
