label, n.:  I know you think of me as The Quiet One or The Weaker One or The Overthinking One, but all I want is to be The One.

lackey, n.:  I will ask you to fetch something not because I’m lazy, but because I want to correct the laziness imbalance in our household.

lackluster, adj.:  All shines fade over time, but I don’t mind seeing the real surface beneath. There is a less illusory beauty there.

lacuna, n.:
