Of husky build? Did he look like a dog? I've never heard of a husky build. I've heard of a husky voice.

I haven’t heard husky for years, a stocky build. On his way to fatness.

A little tired of people nit-picking wording on these articles. Like, when did mainstream language (or your ethnocentrism) monopolized the way something is worded around the world, across cultures and individuals?

Language is fluid. Open yourself up.

Other than that...good read! Kuddos.
