(1) if she had a mercurial,
(2) was it close to her appendix, and
(3) was anybody else's mercurial infected.
I'm sure she's had quite enough of contagious body parts on that island.
Hmmm... I don't think she's dumb. She's just never had the opportunity to use those words nor have been around people who use those words. She's what I call "a plain talker." She expresses herself in a way her circles can understand her. And maybe she'll throw out some doozies that will make us run to the dictionary? Maybe her intelligence lies elsewhere?
Admittedly I have to tax my brain to think about what side my appendix is located (I think it's on the right? Dunno, don't care at the moment) And although I sometimes have to stop to remember if I had an epidural or an episiotomy (maybe it's the epi part of the words) when I had my only child, I could talk forever quite intelligently on many other subjects such as Western and Far Eastern art history and politics.
No! you UD :)
If I were stuck on a deserted island, and had my choice between a bag of rocks and Kat, I would choose the rocks. I'd have a better chance of an intelligent conversation with the rocks. :shrug
