Now Out: Essay 2112 on 脇 (side)

The 442nd essay has posted! Essay 2112 on 脇 (side; aside; armpit; secondary) is now available for purchase. Here's a preview:

Using 脇, we can discuss carrying a book under one’s arm, taking one’s eyes off the road while driving, making a beeline for food at a party, and being singlemindedly absorbed in pottery. The meaning “secondary” opens our eyes to sauces, companies, and weapons that serve as “supporting actors,” as well as buildings that play second fiddle to more important structures. 

Ulrike is off in May and will return next month with more great mnemonics.
