Lovely, Max

Surely should be millstone, though, not milestone?

this too shall pass
milestone, as on a Gantt chart, is probably carefully chosen.

I've heard some of those before, and loved them!

I always thought of "milestone" in that song as being some intermediate deadline set by the employer of the unfortunate composer?

If so 'Levis' might have been more fitting...
Otherwise let me give my whole-hearted welcome

Loud, contentious arguments ... ahh, the hot chilli of life

(aside: why are there so many bleedin' spellings of 'chili', 'chile'!)

(another aside: 'chilly' and 'chilli' are almost homophone-antonyms )

by asides: why are there so many bleedin' spellings of 'chili', 'chile'!)

This puts me in mind of a song by Moxy Fruvous, a Canadian band Hi Bean! with the same sort of gift for wordplay as their countrymen, the Barenaked Ladies. In a MF song called "The Kids' Song", they intone:

My name is Gabby and I just got here from Chile,
I like Canada except that it is chilly,
I met Premier Bob Ray, and he ain't no Pinochet,
My mother makes a spicy bowl of chili!

Cheap rhymes. Always cracks me up.

I don't think I have posted this one before, apologies if I have.

When they catch a chinchilla in Chile
They shave off its beard wile-nile
With a sharp razor blade
Just to say that they've made
A Chilean chinchilla's chin chile
