No, thanks, I already do have an important one (as Leonarda being my sister has it too), and sometimes it gets annoying, especially when others make a frequent refference to it.
But I'll tell you a relative story:
Some years ago a client of mine had a couple of whiskies (clients do have this right) at my office, and started losing control, inspired by the ambience, and expressing his subconcious wishes.
After having told me how much a knight he feels when he walks at night in the old city of Rodos, he asked me to name him a knight (for the protocol, I do have this right by tradition).
Of course I refused, explaining to him that this is nonsense, but he insisted and he wouldn't leave unless I fulfilled his demand.
Next morning I had to go to Court, so in order to get rid of him I told him to kneel down, I took a sword (I have many in my office) and touched both his shoulders with it, saying something dirty (what else?) in Latin.
Then I called a taxi and sent him home.
A week later he called and tried to explain to my secretary that he was the Knight Grigoris on the phone, and that he should have a special attention....
This is true 100% and proves the desire of many people for ranks and distinction....
Alice, you're welcome anytime, malt whisky for you.
Areti, as from tomorrow, you'll take Pit out for his poo three times a day :P
