THERE ARE SO MANY FINE FOPPISH WORDS TO CHOSE FROM, ONE BARELY KNOWS WHERE TO BEGIN!

I MUST PUT IN A WORD FOR "PIQUANT", "NEFARIOUS", AND "STRATAGEM". NO FOP IS A TRUE FOP WITHOUT THESE WONDERFUL WORDS IN THEIR VOCABULARY.

OH YES, VERBS CAN BE QUITE FOPPISH AND GRAND, BUT ADJECTIVES ARE A FOPS TRUE ALLY. TO BE ABLE TO EMBROIDER ALL THAT ONE SAYS WITH FLOWERY DESCRIPTIONS IS THE MARK OF A GREAT GENIUS.

DEFENESTRATE IS A SIMPLY DIVINE WORD; A PITY THAT ONE SO SELDOM FINDS AN OCCASSION TROT IT OUT. PERHAPS IF MORE PEOPLE WENT ABOUT FLINGING EACH OTHER OUT OF WINDOWS...
