  1. I like that word, “eumelanin.” And Charlie is handsome.

    The Greek orig. “eu-” def: good, pleasing. I think that someday when another kitten/cat meanders into my life, I will name him ‘Euphonius’ or her? ‘Eudora.’

    Euphony: EU phony (yue’ fo nee) n.

    A pleasant sound

    3.Euphonious: EU phonious (yue foe’ nee us) adj.

    Full of pleasing sound; harmonious

    Euphemism: EU phemism (yue’ fe miz um) n.

    The use of a pleasant word instead of one that is harsh or offensive.

    Eudora: EU dora (ue doe’ ra) n.

    A feminine name meaning “a good gift”

      • Sorry. I can’t. It’s compulsive.

        An average English word is four letters and a half. By hard, honest labor I’ve dug all the large words out of my vocabulary and shaved it down till the average is three and a half… I never write ”metropolis” for seven cents, because I can get the same money for ”city’.’ I never write ”policeman’,’ because I can get the same price for ”cop’.’… I never write ”valetudinarian” at all, for not even hunger and wretchedness can humble me to the point where I will do a word like that for seven cents; I wouldn’t do it for fifteen.

        –mark twain, at his best!
