two gay men
Re meaning repeat
Mon meaning one, hence a repetition of one is two
Strate, due to the misspelling of straight, it means the opposite.

Normal:.  As in a 'straight eight', a octet of heterosexual males queuing for a bus under shelter on a rainy day, but studiously avoiding looking as if they are in way shape or form 'together'.  Thus maintaining a clear air-gap between each individual, even if it's measured in mere millimetres due to the circumstances.  Eye contact is also studiously avoided.

That sterious which is mine.  You want a sterious of your own, go out and buy one.

An umpire's calls that consistently fall on the side of earned penalties usually made against your team. The umpire is an ass.
You and your friends yell variations of, "You got a lot of gumption making that stupid call, you, Ass!" 

After you've consumed more beer, its easier to yell, "Assumption!"

Punctuality is the politeness of princes, someone said.  The opposite, habitual tardiness, is so frowned on in some quarters that a special hat, somewhat like a dunce's cap, is kept for offenders - the capit-u-late.

The ability of some bedrooms, offices, or other personal spaces to appear much bigger on the inside than they appear from outside, rather like Dr Who's Tardis.

The exact opposite of this strange effect would be untardiness, which is much more difficult to quantify or measure in any way as it would appear to be influenced by highly localised variations in the ocular function of the beholder.

A lass called Monica, or perhaps Maureen, who works for Nike.

(Maybe she scrambles around under the machinery, saving lost soles.)

Adlai Stevenson's campaign slogan when he ran against Dwight D. Eisenhower in the 1952 US Presidential election. The "No Ike" was shortened due to the size constraints of the flashy buttons they had back then.

Cold morning runs.  (Literally, that which makes one turn pale.)
