If you’ve seen My Fair Lady (and if not, why not?), do you remember what Henry Higgins said of Zoltan Karparthy oozing charm and oiling his way around the floor? I would say good ol’ Zoltan definitely fit the definition of oleaginous!
What characters do you know that might also fit that description? (I won’t ask for real life examples, that might get us in hot water! LOL)

I don’t try to be bombastic, but do have a decent vocabulary and do use it. If you haven’t yet read any of my books and are curious about the vocabulary therein, check out either of my series:
Deuces Wild (space opera)
The Sword’s Edge Chronicles (epic science fantasy)
