    Re: terms

    1. My speech is pithy, succinct.
    2. How are you doing (on this project)? Are you succeeding?
    3. What is your position/attitude (on this issue)?
    4. He is interested in her.
    5. An intelligent decision.
    6. We have been discovered?-- ('Ratted on' means informed upon / our secrets revealed.)
    7. Did you go to prison together (as children?!)-- 'do time' means be inprisoned, but this must be a jocular use of the idiom: perhaps they went to the same rigid elementary school?
