A Word on Words

It’s lonely being a logophile. For reasons still unclear to me, any word not immediately familiar to the average 12-year-old is anathema to most folks—such that those of us who derive pleasure from words like, well…anathema are sometimes treated like Mohammet, Jugdish, Sidney, and Clayton at Omega House.

But then, who needs friends when you’ve got Robert Fulford’s explication of palimpsest?

Anathema? That’s nothing. I’m not even allowed to use the word “comport.” It was edited to “act.” Not at all what I meant!

Wait. Isn’t a comport like a garage but without the walls? What’s that got to do with “act”?

Or is comport what you do with kitchen scraps? I can’t remember.

My new rig has two glove comportments.
