hairs growing under the arm - HIRCI (Now you have a word for everything! This one, I hate to tell you, comes from the Latin hircus - a he-goat


(from Bailey's list).

And if one is an old goat, or just resembles or smells like one, one is hircine.

hir·cine
–adjective
1. of, pertaining to, or resembling a goat.
2. having a goatish odor.
3. lustful; libidinous.

Hirci and hircine both stressed on the first syllable. Hirci as in mercy, hircine as in her sign.
Life is like playing chess with chessmen who each have thoughts and feelings and motives of their own.
