    Now we can all sound like Leolaia and Narkissos.

    Those who have not yet mastered theological conversation will find this guide invaluable in conversing with peers and authorities. Simply think of any 4-digit number (say, 6518) and read off the similarly numbered phrases from columns A, B, C, and D. (For example, 6518 is "In the last analysis, the homiletic problem is further compounded by considering global perspectives.") Never mind what it means; just use it and watch the way you bring conversation to a halt. You can compose profound reports by using varied number combinations.

    As you become more proficient in its use, you may wish to experiment with varying the column sequence, e.g., BACD, CBAD, etc. These advanced configurations are not recommended for beginners, however, requiring as they do sophisticated dexterity with punctuation.

    Ms McDucket, in the last analysis the underlying question tends toward an emphasis on dogmatics.

    Dear Bebu, I had this serious disagreement with Moggy here. I felt that a liturgical perspective based upon interdisciplinary considerations adds considerable urgency to an emphasis of dogmatics and a soteriological point of view.

    Whiskers bristling at such idiocy, she insisted that any attempt to introduce historical analysis calls into question the eschatological structure from an exegitical point of view and imposes smothering constraints upon the clarity of the sociological dimensions.

    She would have put me right on other socio-theological points as well, but she had more pressing matters to attend, namely it was time for din-dins
