Lexigraphic Love

Granny and Pappy loved words.

“The coruscations off the lake,” he said; “glittered in the gloaming,” she finished.

But when Pappy compared Granny to a summer’s dray, and refused to recant, there was only one word to describe his perfidious superbity.

“Piss off,” said Granny.

“That’s two words,” muttered Pappy.
