I've just realized, that I did NOT miss it, but failed to thank you marina!
or at least, I didn't tell you so (as I always feel thankful, when something like this is posted).
And I too have learned the word "imbibing" back then - but didn't we have another thread, where we've discussed this in large? Maybe the one about 'old words' we learned through Hank (like 'Moxie')? Not sure here.
