>hypochondriac means below the breastbone cartilage, and is a referent to the abdomen, which the Romans considered the seat of melancholy.

Hyperchondriac might be a person who is neurotically certain that he's in good health when in fact he's not.<

As it's above the ribcage, I take it he's also a pain in the neck ;)

Glad am I that you asked that question. Our Industrial Age, Iron Age, Bronze Age, Stone Age, was preceded by the period before Man made clothes. Yes, it was the Barest Age of all.

First of all.
We have a saying that goes: “El hombre y el oso, cuanto mas feo mas hermoso”. Roughly: “Man and bear, the uglier, the better”.
Once said that I've got to admit that I wear a beard and my wife loves it although my younger son refuses kissing me because of it.
I started wearing it some eons ago when I got married, I’m so lazy that shaving myself every morning was a torture for me so wearing a beard delivered me of this chore.
Five months ago I discovered that I could stop combing myself by cutting my hair very short so that’s the way I wearing it.
Right now I’m considering getting neutered to avoid taking a shower every morning.

Er--well--I, um, was wondering if any of these threads would ever return to the gutter. Now I know.
I suppose then you'd want to wear your debutante gown!
But I think I might just decline the party invitation.

Following your sequel to Hamlet - here are a couple of showstoppers:

"Oh there's Goddot!"

"I'm looking for three sisters, they ordered a taxi to Moscow"
