Colloquy: a conversation, esp. about theology.

Their colloquy after his faux pas, his egregious sin, became thus:

"On belay."
"Climbing."
"Off belay."
"Belay off."
"Sorry I dropped the water bottle."
"Put me on belay, please."
"On belay."
"Climbing."
"O.K., but I'm still sorry."

Good one!

How about 'Theosophy'?
As in; the writer Phillip K Dick was obsessed with what he called "the 2/3/74 theosophy" concerning events in his life that occurred on that date, that followed him the rest of his life.

Word for April: Hadron.

Bonus: Snit.

http://www.inlander.com/spokane/big-bang/Content?oid=2286463

Excerpt from Particle Fever, solving the problem of "Where Did Ron Go?":

"We had Ron at a loss for words, finally, so he took off in a snit; but, like in the movies, he collided with a cute little baryon on the way out and particle history was altered for all time."

This happened on April 1, theosophists.

Synonym: mail slot

I don't want to get in a fight with the creature who has 60 fingers and/or toes. But Captain Kirk might like to bang it.

Sexagesima is a horrible disease, sometimes blamed on contaminated holy water. It is very common around the Lenten season, especially among Roman Catholics, beginning about two to three weeks before Ash Wednesday in most cases.

The earliest Sexagesima can occur is January 25 and the latest is February 28 (or February 29 in a leap year).
