gifted with the golden tongue, chunk of Blarney Stone and massive reserves

Daily Lesson 1

Instead of saying "yes" and "no", use "aye" and "nay".

"Nay, I will not."

Shakespearian Word/Phrase of the Day:
cry you mercy (beg your pardon)
"I cry you mercy, milady, I did not mean to tread upon thy foot."

Nunc est bibendum.
