Both are new to me!
Thanks! for stopping.
Both new to me, too!
Glad you came by.
I like tumescent - it even sounds pompous! Great words.
Good use of the two words.
Tumescent also has a less g-rated meaning, as you may have discovered; its other meaning is "swollen" or "engorged." I'll let your imagination do the rest. I'd never heard of Clavius before, though.
Glad I used the g-rated meaning.
Those are new to me. I do like tumescent but wouldn't want anyone to think I meant the meaning JNC alluded to!
I'm glad it had two different meanings.
Nice word :)
