    They are so pretty and fragrant too, the best of both worlds. Although, their name sounds like a stomach problem LOL.

    but that's not as bad as 'doritis'. which phrase works better?
    "i just got back from (insert orchid farm name here) and i got myself a nice doritis"
    or
    "i just got back from the dermatologist, and i have doritis, he gave me a nice ointment"
    - see

    (come to think of it, the whole orchid family name is fairly bothersom... i'll put it this way, a male who has undergone a medical procedure called an "orchiectomy" is an eunuch)
