+1, interesting question. I'm a bit sorry this question hasn't received more answers, preferably complete. :/

comment British English phrase “dot and carry one”
While I'm sure OP is grateful for some kind of answer, I'm unsure how this "answer" answers OP's question. It doesn't explain what dot and carry one means in the context given. I find this answer to be incomplete and somewhat unsatisfactory.

comment Idiom, word, or expression meaning an easy-to-do task
While this is a great question, I don't see how you expect (or expected) to get a solid, definitive answer. There are many idioms that can be used for whatever you're trying to achieve.

@BillFranke So wish I could mark that as 'best answer'.

comment One word to describe the meaning of life?
Why not just ask "What do you think of your life?" Destiny is a word more used when talking about the future, either personal or not. Depending on what you mean, it (destiny) might be the right word.

comment “My wife and I's seafood collaboration dinner”
+1 I thought it would have been incorrect as well. You wouldn't say (alone) "I's seafood" or "I seafood" (unless it was "I see food") but you'd say "My seafood platter". The 'up' was because this posed as an interesting question, regardless of what someone else would have thought as a bad one. (And I happen to like the answer that was nearly deemed unanswerable.)

comment Friendlier way to express you paid for a person's drink/dinner and expect it to be paid back
@DJClayworth I wish I had your friends because This one's on me implies strings attached. As in, this one is on me until I ask something of you.

comment “A good memory” vs. “good memories”
I have to disagree with the very first sentence of your answer. I agree with it in the sense that one wouldn't "produce" that sentence when speaking of "imperfect recollections", however one would and could use that sentence when speaking of a bad childhood. (I'm just stating this because your first sentence is slightly misleading. For what OP is asking, it isn't the correct sentence, but I don't think generally speaking, it is okay for you to imply that it is a sentence a native speaker wouldn't ever use.)
