I had heard that 'lush' or to 'be a lush' is to be a drunk/alcoholic in some parts of the U.S.

'Lush' in Wilt/Glos can mean really nice/really lovely!

Haha, yes! Lush was one of the words that confused me at first. I too had previously known it to mean lovely. I'm wondering if the American usage is more Midwestern.
