Small boost to fragile ego

November 3rd, 2006 (10:48 pm)
current music: Lott, Langridge and Johnson: 'The Deaf Woman's Courtship'

I was introduced to someone today as a 'polymath'. This was welcome but not strictly true, given that the person to whom I was being introduced was a leading lutenist and I am as ignorant of musical matters as I am of scientific ones. It was still flattering though.

What a coincidence. I just learned the word 'lutenist' today. :D

A useful word to describe the player of a mellifluous instrument.
