Vocabulary: A college boy Leroy, slouching on the porch, sniffs an aroma of BBQ floating over the fence. His stomach revs up growling. He peers through the fence's peephole. Oh my goodness, a feast. A lady picks up a homemade BUN with a burnt slash on top, she spreads some half-melted BUTTER on the bun and some MAYO. Added on top is the BBQ-cooked patty. She adds on some toppings -- cheddar CHEESE, a few slices of TOMATO, LETTUCE, ONION, and PICKLE. On the other bun, she squeezes a spoonful of KETCHUP and skips the MUSTARD. The BBQ cooker offers some grilled MUSHROOMS. Sounds good. Drooling already? Leroy strides straight to his half-empty refrigerator. He gawks at a bunch of frozen HOTDOGS and some French fries. He wails, "Why am I always tortured by the neighbor!"
