Hubristic Orgulosity

I can’t bitch about this archaic and rarely used word that sounds like a dog attempting to upchuck because, in the China book, against the advice of my editor, I clung steadfastly to the word “Fardle” but my reasons were 1) its cognate is in common use in French and other Romance languages, and 2) it sounds like something 12 year old boys think is funny.

BUT still and all, C’mon. “Orgulousness” has no currency in my life. My dogs aren’t orgulous, I’m not orgulous, the people I am surrounded by on a daily basis are very very very seldom orgulous and I eschew the company of those who are. They have to peddle their orgulosity elsewhere. I’m too good for that shit.
