Corporiety

Corporiety comes from corporeal and is the quality of being or having a material body - just like Brilly here.

Oh, not that sort of material... Gosh, English can be confusing, can't it?

So are we corporeals? Fascintating word. Lovely bear, Patsy. Is he bobbing his tongue out at us? :)

That would be rough if Brilly was made from Brill-O pads...

My favorite characters are non-corporeal. (just saying)

But I love Brilly.

Maggie May said...

Not sure whether Brilly is corporeal or not now. I'm easily confused.

Meradeth Houston said...

Hah! English can certainly be a tricky beast :)

Patsy said...

We are, Nicola.

Not heard the expression 'boobing his tongue' but yes, he is. He's a cheeky chap.

Patsy said...

My dastardly brother used to clim he was, Alex.

Patsy said...

Brilly is quite shy, Hilary (despite the tongue bobbing)

Patsy said...

I love him too, Mac.

Patsy said...

I got myself confused on that one too, Maggie. He physically exists, so I think he is.

Patsy said...

Certainly is, Meradeth.

You're just humouring me, aren't you, Oscar?
