I still have a copy of that Lakoff and Johnson book. I used it the year it came out, during my undergraduate days of my special major in Psycholinguistics. It was, and still is, a great book!

Thank you very kindly for the nod and the link. I really enjoyed your book. Coincidentally we live in the same city, except that I haunt attics and basements. Wishing you good health.
