Sorry, no etymologies found.


  • When you invade the chiropodical secret of the real hero's fine boot, or brush him in passing -- if you have looked once too often at a certain lady, or have stood between him and the sun, or even twiddled your thumbs at him in an indecorous or careless manner -- look to it that you be prepared to draw and mayhap to be spitted upon his sword's point, with honor.

    The Delicious Vice

  • As we passed rapidly over a moorland space, broken with huge knolls and solitary rocks, something hurt my foot, and taking off my shoe, I found that a small chiropodical operation was necessary, which involved the use of my knife.
