      the worthless word for the day is: gilflurt

      [see also flirt-gills, Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet]
      obs : a proud minks, a vain capricious woman
      {Grose's 1811 Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue}

      "Some called her a gilflurt, a proud minks. You had no
      more chance than a cat.. without claws if you entered
      into a dispute with her."
      - Susan Sayer, Xanthippe (fr. Car Maintenance.. (1997))
