Lagniappe: Velvet Elvii

From my quote journal, a little bookish humor.

“I am the foremost collector of velvet Elvii in the city of Chicago,” I said at once.

“Elvii?” Marcone inquired.

“The plural could be Elvises, I guess,” I said. “But if I say that too often, I start muttering to myself and calling things ‘my precious,’ so I usually go with the Latin plural.”
