I'm actually surprised that a certain member hasn't been swooning at the chance to show the philosophers she is one of their ilk.
I love that word: Ilk... I use it every chance I never get... It's like ointment, another word I never get to say... I want to go to the doctor just praying he will give me some ointment I can rub all over my ilk... Me and my ilk, softer than silk like to drink milk all covered with ointment... What rhymes with ointment??? You are the ointment for my bent joint... I'm not sure that is what I wanted to say...
You know what word I love?
It's even better than ointment, IMO.
In the movie Fargo, the big silent bad guy used that word, when he got bit and was looking for something to put on it.
He starts in about unguent around the 1:05 mark.
Must agree with Unguent...
Catulus invited a friend once, claiming poverty, but advised him:
For Venus and her Cupids
Gave my girl an unguent
And when you smell it
All you'll want the gods to do
Is make you one Gigantic Nose
To smell it always with...
You see; to smell such an unguent, and to have such a nose has so commanded all my ambitions and philosophy was always so far down on my list that I could kneel on it to pray for such a girl... And trust me; I did just that...
