Geez, stop shouting already! I don’t want you to deliver after 6 PM, anyway. I don’t even want this free pile of crap you are offering. Thanks, Ralph, for the ad with speeling issues and the great title.

  1. So, “latus” is very old Latin, with roots in Greek, Attic, and Indo-European. That ancient meaning to abear, but also a strap or binging to carry a load ;the girdling strap of a pack saddle. Which informs the Classic Latin sense of “flank” or abdominal side. In modern Mexican Spanish the equivalent would be “fajita.”

    It’s also the plural accusative of Latvian “lats” which is the former national currency of Latvia.
