* It is random.
* It springs up without advance notice.
* Who knows how it is triggered?
For example as I was walking with Penne on Thanksgiving morn I, all out of the blue, recalled these words from the King James/Authorized version of the Christian Bible (first published in 1611)
"lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness" ( James 1:21)
From where did this memory spring?
There is a deliciousness in 17th C English which has all but disappeared from 21st C speech and writing.
It is a lovely, poetic and evocative phrase.
I often love to be naughty. I would be more than glad to partake in a "superfluity of naughtiness".
Care to join me?
