I consulted a tyromancer To see if I could find an answer She consulted some cheese And told me so much sleaze I’m convinced she’s just a fat chancer! Written after I read an article in the dentist’s waiting room today and I discovered that Tyromancy is form of divination involving observation of cheese, especially as it coagulates 09-19-17

Yes its for real Agnes lol. I think its something they used to do in the past and for some reason it didn't catch on lol. I wrote down the word and composed 4 lines whilst i was sitting in the waiting room as the dentist was running late.:-) hugs jan xx

They had an emergency at the dentist which meant all our appointments were 30 mins late so I had time to look through a magazine and I learned a new word which I will probably never ever use again lol:-) hugs jan xx

Ew! Too bad! Wish I could replace that for you with my own memory of Brie (flesh only) with fresh basil on silky soft baguette, with sunshine and dear friends. ;) cheers!

Melted brie turns my stomach and reminds me of the time i went to stay with a pen pal and his mother served it with pasta and the brie still had the skin on... I've never eaten it since!!!! lol:-) hugs jan xx

hmm...the coagulation of cheese is not food for thought to my palate, but thanks for feeding my vocabulary with a new word. A cheesy little Limerick...I had to type that... Hugs to ya, Jan.
