My condolences! How we abuse the weakest creatures so freely is beyond me! My Hank, described below, sadly met his untimely end on the highway beside my parents house
"when an instrument of fate would not wait for his flopping gait."
You should have wept her yesterday,
Wasting upon her bed:
But wherefore should you weep today
That she is dead?
Lo we who love weep not today,
But crown her royal head.
Let be these poppies that we strew,
Your roses are too red:
Let be these poppies, not for you
Cut down and spread. --Christina Rossetti

I suspect that erudite would have been an appropriate descriptor. Actually, high-falutin would have been one as well. Certainly, it was pretentious. I had a very intimate relationship with my thesaurus.
