Words the Dutch lady sitting next to me carefully underlined in the article she was reading, presumably because she didn't understand them.

Drunken.
Ointment.
Boorish.
Brat.
Crap timing.
Tantrum.
Truly.
Venue.
Overheard.
Torn up into tiny pieces.
Scales (as in 'fallen from eyes')
Buttonholes.
Deprived. (Underlined, and then, after a thoughtful moment, rubbed out again.)


NB. This is now a far better story than the original article. Just shows, you can never edit too much.

She probably rubbed out "deprived" because she mistook it for "depraved."
