    “Inured”? May be spelled small, but it sounds like a big word.

    Had a teacher once tell a classmate that it was always a good thing to look something up when you wanted to know the meaning rather than asking and expecting to get a correct meaning in response. Good advice, something they should have been pushing on us before 10th grade (yeah they did teach what a dictionary was but most of the time you asked a teacher what a word meant and they just gave a definition, he was even more about us using dictionaries on a regular basis than any of our others had been so we weren’t too lazy about such things) . Didn’t know what inured was much less how it’s pronounced. Looked it up, can see why Pig thinks Zebra called himself a nerd. And Zebra’s right, he has become accostumed to accepting something undesirable for him.

    Sounds a lot less like " a nerd" when pronounced in the English (or Aussie) manner.
    But, then again, Americans fight by shooting liturgical books at their enemies … (missile, missal …).

    Which is why I’ve seen a sign in one shop window in London that says American spoken here.

    Piggie makes such a good Nerd! Glasses, buttoned-up shirt, and what may be a pocket-protector! Maybe Pig should become active in community theatre, in “character” rôles. He certainly is a character….

    sorry most nerds (I speak from being one) are undetectble until you says something totally wrong about computers, then they choke and correct you (sometimes)

    Maybe it’s a clear pocket protector and looks yellow.
