Classic Advice Columns

25 Feb

Do not emit a cachin(n)ation, or show your choler by engaging against your friends in ribaldry; instead, give your pride a deglutition and with your nods and quiet affirmations produce a pleasant sough of “mmhmm”‘s, that may not make you the cynosure of a party, but will earn you the title of a kind listener.

Our words this week are:
cachin(n)ation
sough
choler
ribaldry
deglutition
cynosure

    In my choler at dropping a full mug of sweetened coffee all over the kitchen floor, I deglutated my ribaldry with a sough; this not being at all satisfying, however, I instead burst out in cacchination which soon made me the family cynosure.

    I forgot to applaud you on this. It’s wonderful. Also, your life really seems to lend itself to a classical vocabulary, doesn’t it? 🙂
