Suppose it's nothing long (5)


I believe the answer is:


'suppose' is the definition.
(I know that suppose can be written as opine)

'nothing long' is the wordplay.
'nothing' becomes 'o' (looks like zero - 0).
'long' becomes 'pine' (to pine for someone is to long for them).

'it's' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for opine that I've seen before include "Believe" , "judge" , "Suggest" , "Suppose" , "State one's held view" .)

I've seen this clue in The Globe and Mail.
