Descriptive

How delicious is it to find a word that describes your feelings about a person completely. Recently I struck up an acquaintance with a little titch of a fellow with a very very high opinion of himself. So much so that I’ve decided to give the bloke a very wide pass from now on.

And today, thanks to something we were reading to Arjun I found this word:

Cockalorum

n.

1. A little man with an unduly high opinion of himself.
That word – Its beautiful. It fits perfectly. And it rolls of my tongue nicely. Words do that ever so well sometimes!
Some words drive me toward an online etymology dictionary. This is one of those.
