"I got this watch from my grandfather on his deathbed. He sold it to me for $50..."
Dizzy Girl is poorer than a church mouse after buying a $30 US Webster's New World College Dictionary (4th ed.) for school.
My dictionary of choice is the Shorter Oxford Dictionary (2 volumes). It's the old newsroom dictionary at the magazine that I used to work at. Someday, I may buy one of their unabridged dictionaries...but to save space, I may buy the edition with the four pages printed on one page and shrunk super-small.
