So, I've just registered, and I believe the protocol in these situations is for one to introduce oneself. So, er, I'm doing that.

Hi. I'm an aspiring Latinist. As of yet, I'm a poor-grade one.

Um, that's all I can think of to say, so bye for now.

Ah I'm in the same boat, whenever I come across a piece of Latin I can comprehend rather quickly, I almost have a heart attack.

The point is we're aspiring though, right?

Also! I notice an etymological connection between aspirate and a** pirate, AMIRITE?

A-HA! I've been trying to work out how to say that in Latin for so long!

I think you've put me five steps closer to finding the gentle, cultured way to come out to one's parents. It's for a friend, obviously. Honest.
