Curious. One would expect the word ‘moustache’ to crop up slightly more frequently than once in four years, but apparently not: today I typed it in an email, and my Mac dutifully and sternly wiggled a red underline at me. Evidently the American spelling omits the ‘o,’ and I’d not previously had cause to correct Quern’s dictionary. But this does rather beg the question: how is it that I have not written the word for so long? Perhaps I should grow one, to provide ample excuse?
On second thoughts: bad idea.
