reef
 v.— «I failed to understand it a bit later, when I hooked the bottom of the lake. To me, reefing and reefing and reefing on my Very Expensive graphite rod was fairly serious business. To her, it was a good belly laugh. Especially when I reefed so hard that the rod snapped.» —“Trip’s Humor Lost With Reporter’s Cherished Rod” by Ron Judd Seattle Times (Washington) Oct. 28, 1993.
