Pronunciation: scent eh meant all

Sentence: It does not matter from what corner of his mind, the now elderly Jack Horner, could always find, through out all time, be it from adolescent to his old-age prescent, the fragrance of cinnamon in bread pudding or plum pie, was indelibly etched, from his memory fetched, making his thumb twitch, and with a scentimental sigh, recapture the feeling of "What a good boy am I!"

Etymology: SCENT - a nice smell. SENTIMENTAL - tender feelings of nostalgia, tender feelings when thinking of the past. ///// For people whose first langauge is not English, or those so young they may not have heard of Jack Horner, here's his original nursery rhyme: Little Jack Horner sat in the corner, eating his pudding and pie. He stuck in his thumb, and pulled out a plum and said "What a good boy am I!"
