Superior Person's Tuesday!

Camilles and Dying swans, n. Medical terms for patients who loudly proclaim the imminence of their death when in fact their condition is not noticeably terminal.

"My toes are killing me!" complained the dying swan.

Each Tuesday, we’ll offer up a Superior Word for the edification of our Superior Readers, via the volumes of the inimitable Peter Bowler. You can purchase all or any of the four Superior Person’s Books of Words from the Godine website. Camilles and Dying swans appear in the Superior Person's Field Guide.
