Some snatches of overheard and misheard cafe conversation…

But first…
Dulltown, UK/Europe: Today’s dictionary words are: antiphon, antimasque, anticous, antichlor, antirachitic, antitragus, and wistiti. Please have these words looked up and placed in suitable sentences ready for Professor Mouldie first thing after breakfast tomorrow morning. The professor may turn up wearing a Lincoln green outfit and rakish matching hat with a feather in it, and carrying an English longbow and quiver. You should not allow this to distract you from your studies. Any student possessing a quarterstaff should bring it along.
