I believe "Purient" is a laundry additive.

Frankly, it just doesn't come up that often but I'm fairly certain I've never felt the need to work it in 14 times in one conversation.

I'm sure you're not the only one who knows what it means, but I'm fairly certain I've never seen anyone use it quite so much in the course of everyday conversation.

You mean to say that you've ascertained that individuals rarely have the neccessity to employ such jargon in everyday conversation?

Communication with the uneducated and inexpert is really just so very arduous. How prurient of you.

Yes.

I only use that word when discussing special occasion weekend plans with the spousal unit, so its more of an everyfewmonths usage rather than everyday.

Would it be prudent to be both prurient and puritian?

How about puerile? Puréed? Honestly, I need to know how all these things fit together!

Code:
Hmm...me thinks it's totally obvious that I haven't gotten much sleep this week.  Blast these besotted midterms!
