Good one...I wonder if they really played the trumpet as they rode into battle the way they do in the movies? I mean can you hold a horn and steer a horse at the same time? Probably no different than driving and talking on a cell... - Nosila, 2009-07-09: 11:07:00

Paramourgency

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: para merjin see

Sentence: When Tara met Gord, it was love at first fright. She had arranged for her best friend, May, to call her to interrupt the date if it was a paramourgency...and sadly it was.
