Dictionary Leaf

I found this very thin, very old leaf in my dictionary, at the beginning of the N section, between Pages 1,432 and 1,433.

When you’re looking for a word and that word turns out to be a leaf, you know anything is possible.

A new entry on stewed prunes and raisins, with or without dried apricots or dried figs, added to Let’s Eat.

How strange. I wonder how it got there.

Perhaps it was being used as a book mark. I use all sorts of things as book marks. Scraps of paper, pens and pencils, toilet paper (not used thankyou), I've even used an orange peal once. It made my book smell fresh.

Oranges do have a magic all their own.

Joe Hutchison told a nice dictionary leaf story in the comment stream following this entry.
