This morning at breakfast I was telling Larry about a terrific new book I just finished (more on that later). I mentioned that I had to look up five words when reading it. My favorite was: tertulia, an informal meeting of people to talk about current affairs, arts, etc.
“I have a good vocabulary. It’s unusual for me to have to look up so many words,” I added.
“Well, there’s a lot of them out there,” he responded.
