Z waxes sentimental for a moment but veers away

We’re back at our other home this week, otherwise known as Tim’s place.

Just now, I drained my wine glass.  LT pointed out that there was none left.  I directed my gaze fixedly at his glass …. and he recognised my look as an imitation of that of Eloise cat.  Truly, it seems, no one knows me better.  It’s a bit breathtaking, in its way.

Roses is holding the fort again while we’re away, with the aid of her other half, Lawrence.  I’ve also roped in Wince, my gardener, to keep an eye on the greenhouse.  I feel surrounded by kindness.

This afternoon, I introduced LT to the phrase “moist towelette.”  He was as horrified as one might expect.  It was his fault, however.  He said “gusset.”  Most awful words?

    Well, you said you came up with ‘zex’ in Scrabble, which turned out to be disappointingly unawful. So that’s one down.

    Sorry, I am not sure about the correct meaning of “aweful” in this connotation, and it’s German too, but I hate the word “austherapiert”, and do no want to hear it ever again.

      You have the sense in which I’ve used awful, Mago – not awe inspiring, as you realise.

      I’ve got a list of words that make me cringe but I try not to mind too much!
