    Since wives count I nominate mine. She told me recently after a get-together with her girlfriends that they asked about married life and me, and the only complaint she had about me was that I didn't spend enough time on my photography.

    Oh, I get it- flatter him until he's flatter than a pancake.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    To be even more pedantic, it's "Sic transit gloria + genitive case". If we use Leica, ae (I declination) than it must be Sic transit gloria Leicae (genitive singular).

    Plural would be "Sic transit gloria Leicarum"

    I defer to the native speaker of modern Latin, i.e. Italian, and his knowledge of ancient Latin, far superior to my 40-year-old hazy memory of high school Latin.

    I must declare though, that I have gone into a hotel and said, "I would like a room".

    Thank you. It's 40 years since I took Latin, and I just couldn't remember the correct form.
