Of Prigs & Popinjays

My brother called last night. During our conversation, he used the word "prig." What an incredibly good word. Four letters say it all. Even without knowing the meaning, you can probably picture a person who is a prig.

My brother found some related words on the internet - coxcomb, fop and popinjay. Old words, but so full of character that they're going to have to make their way into my writing sometime. For definitions, head over to Dictionary.com, but be careful. You might get lost, especially if you're a word junkie like I am.
