Please forgive my ramblings, but I was thinking of my great aunt earlier today. I don't remember what got me started on that train of thought.


Don't get me wrong -- I loved her very much, but my great aunt was a "Puffer." I am convinced that - during her entire life - she was never acquainted with anyone who was "a guy from Belton." Sometimes it made me tired just to listen to her.


Regardless of whether it was relevant to the story or discussion, everything got "puffed." If a player in the story made his living in the medical field, he was never just a "doctor." He was always a "surgeon" or a "neurosurgeon," and usually "the most prominent neurosurgeon in Central Texas," regardless of whether she knew anything about neurosurgeons, the characteristics that might make them prominent, or anything at all about the other neurosurgeons in Central Texas.


If a meal was tasty, it was never just "delicious" -- it was "the most sumptuous thing I had ever tasted." If a theatre performance was well-attended, it was never "crowded" -- it was always "sold out." You know ... "puffing."


The "puffing" seldom added anything to the story, but it did make my dear old aunt look very, very pretentious. But I loved her dearly anyway.


Did anyone else have an aunt like that?
