Interesting passage from a book

"Vagina Ecologist."
"What?"
She repeated it.
"You mean a gynecologist."
"Yes and no. Gavin prefers to break it into the root words to capture a meaning he feels is lost. The ecology of the vagina, the vagina as environment, rather than just negative space."

-- Jonathan Lethem, As She Climbed Across the Table

Pfa! I have often referred to "not disturbing the delicate ecology of my personal wetlands!" Excellent!

You're the only other person I've ever encountered who's read this book!

I am, perhaps, more excited by this than necessary.
