Everything I know about cool I learnt in 1994. That was the year of Pulp Fiction. Nothing, I learnt, says cool like some rough looking dudes, a mysterious suitcase and an Uma Thurman haircut.
I can’t tell you what’s in that suitcase, but our sailor has just asked these homines for a gem. What kind of gem?
moonstone lapis lunae
aquamarine beryllus aeroides
garnet carbunculus garamanticus
Just between you and me, my money is on a diamond, adamas.
When the door has opened, two people, a man and a woman, greet the sailor suspiciously. ‘Do you have the gem?’ the sailor asks them.
