Well, Rob, as a fluent speaker of Latin, and as a man getting on to the age
of things emerita, I am very honoured by your proposal. I would ask one
thing, though, and that is that you put "amici emeriti" on the front of the
T-shirt, and ALL our names on the back. That way, we could sign each other's
T-shirts at fun nights. The deal would be that you can't wash your T-shirt
until you've got everybody's signature.
