    Uh, oh, you got me on two out of three today. Well, I no longer have a personalized license plate, though I do give my number plates names. Like my current one begins with HKV and I say that either stands for High Kilo Voltage or Hollywood’s King Vidor.

    And I . . . shamefully . . . and embarrasedly . . . have to confess to the first one.

    I think only chefs and snobby foodies pronounce endive as ahn-DEEVE.
