Ah, that lovely aroma
The Voices page last Wednesday was especially interesting, from Brenda Looper’s column on the correct usage of certain words—always useful—to the letter from Mr. Stanley G. Johnson on proper etiquette.
Necrophage would not be something that I would particularly enjoy indulging in; however, the word “necrophage” is somewhat north of my pay grade, so I may be missing something there. But eating with one’s fingers, ah, that I understand, and when I read the last sentence of Mr. Johnson’s letter, “Ladies of culture could still be seen to wipe their fingers in their hair,” I immediately took greater interest.
I could see myself in the arms of a beautiful, amorous woman but instead of being turned off by the acrid, offensive stench of her perfume, I would be immediately invigorated by the smell of bacon in her hair.
