I'm willing to try it.
Why, I can smile, and murder while I smile,
And cry 'Content' to that which grieves my heart,
And wet my cheeks with artificial tears,
And frame my face to all occasions.
I can add colours to the chameleon,
Change shapes with Proteus for advantages,
And set the murderous Machiavel to school.
Can I do this, and cannot get a crown?
Really random, but you bringing up conchs reminded me of a popular saying here that I used to use as often as possible in America, with no explanation, whenever someone acted like they knew what they were talking about or doing but didnt really have a clue:
"You dont know when conchs done."
The confused looks are often priceless . Takes an islander or a true south Floridian to get it usually.
