Well I have your comprehensive instructions full of detailed particulars you wrote for me here.

And I followed them to the letter and I have witnesses that will swear to it.

So, would you like to state that complaint again Dorris?

The Scottish Word: eeriorums with its definition and its meaning illustrated and captioned with the word used in context in the Scots language and in English.
