I would buy an album or book of Yoda Worship Songs in a hot second.

(Yoda makes frequent visits to my Latin classes as we work out sentences. We practice not being slaves to word order while also not bouncing around like frogs (because they tend to bounce over important things), and we aim to keep it all in our heads until it plops into place. I tell them, "Don't worry if it's Yoda-speak for now. You'll understand it first, and then pat it into shape.")

Wait, does that mean you used to keep frog spawn on your dresser when you were twelve? (I grew up in the suburbs, so that sounds like the kind of thing I might have wanted to do but wouldn't have had (a) a source of frog spawn, nor (b) permission to keep it in the house.)

You don't like dill? Like...pickles or just sprinkled in other things?

Ever, at all, in any food, at any time.

What are dill leaves called in Hindi?

In India, dill is known as "Sholpa" in Bengali, shepu (शेपू) in Marathi and Konkani, savaa in Hindi or soa in Punjabi. In Telugu, it is called Soa-kura (for herb greens). It is also called sabbasige soppu (ಸಬ್ಬಸಿಗೆ ಸೊಪ್ಪು) in Kannada.

Dill is frequently used in spanakopita.
