Eli's So Cute

As cute as I am, I lost a call-waiting face-off to one of Eli's classmates. They were discussing a Greek word, spelled O-U, I think. It's accented for and pronounced with rough breathing. They had the darndest time with with word since it's really rare and a generative indirect reflexive pronoun in the singular. They had to be sure about it, and I had to wait for a call back.

Still, he's cute.

aw, shucks! actually, it was a 'genitive' indirect reflexive pronoun (it was in a genitive absolute within indirect discourse). the problem is that that word ('hou') could be three different things, and the thing that it is only appears a couple times in classical greek. crazy, huh?

Ro, uhm I have a job. I had to go do a clinic for evacuees from the Gulf states. This country sucks and where the F--- is FEMA?

Eli, I can't believe you're the first and only reader to point out my mistake! You're cute and a careful reader.

If you two weren't two of my bestest friends in the world, you might make me sick with your uber-cuteness.

But instead I am uber-jealous. Do I know how to play cupid or what???

I feel the same way. If it were someone else, I'd barf at the cuteness.

There's nothing quite so cute as a Greek word.

Only the mother of a Greek speaker could express such a sentiment.

Kathy, I thought I warranted more than a "one of Eli's classmates" by now. "One of Eli's sounding boards" might come closer.
