Wipe the glass. This is the usual way to start, even in the days, day and night, only a happy one.

Why is it so cold today?

Silvish uses the same "pro/per quid" derivation for "why" as a lot of Romance languages (parcoû). The Silvish term is partly fossilized because the "quid" reflex has dropped out of use as a stand-alone word. Still, most speakers can parse parcoû after a fashion through exposure to French and/or Italian.

Nothing too exciting here, I suppose. But it was nice to work with a. Couple of languages I haven’t used in a while.
