•    The synonym of deal is plea, of course.
•    The synonym of above is work, because above is over and I’m over work.

•    The synonym of fly is drink, because they drink.
•    The antonym of active is disagree, because you can disagree passively.

•    The antonym of narrow is scold and that is the truth.
•    The antonym of separate is weak, because those who can’t live by themselves are weak.
•    The antonym of normal is doubt, because only the exceptional like me doubt the lies we are told by the elites.
•    The synonym of spade is oak because they both come out of the ground.

Thanks for that. Loved “avulse”.

• I feel like it is something pirates should say “avulse, me hearties!”

Like

• That’s the sort of sentence where you want to be very clear on the comma placement. “Avulse me, hearties” could be an unfortunate order to give.
