Christie Christmas Words

Five words Agatha Christie has taught me this Christmas.

  • embonpoint
  • florid
  • interlard
  • blench
  • propinquity

To practice using these new found gems of the English language I made up this sentence with a Christmas theme …

“In this season of familial propinquity, the true meaning is often dulled by the interlarding of a fictional character of florid embonpoint sufficient to make one blench.”
