We both grew up in Saint Louis.

For most of my three-quarters of a century of life, my assumption has been that,

'loose : aloose :: 'round : around

Adding insult to injury, my spellcheck refuses to accept _aloose_,
though it accepts _'loose_, _'round_, and _around_.

Oh, well.

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint
to come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
