Default [Dixonary] Round 3002 - OLM - VOTE NOW!

Here are 14 definitions for the word OLM shared exactly as I received them, but only one is correct. Please send your votes by responding to the Dixonary group for what you believe are two definitions most likely to have come from a dictionary. The deadline for voting is Tuesday, July 30, at 6 p.m. Eastern Time. As usual, I will let you determine the time in your time zone.. :-)

Any misspellings, weird spacing, etc., are my fault and not an indication of the accuracy of a particular definition.

Good luck!
