in case you wondered...

my dictionary indicates that

a modicum is ‘a small, indefinite quantity’, a moderate or token amount
(from the Latin, a little way)

and relish: vigorous and enthusiastic enjoyment
or a spicy or savoury condiment
or the taste experience when a savoury condiment is taken into the mouth
or to anticipate eagerly
or simply to take pleasure in
(from the Old French, something remaining, left behind)

and savoury: morally respectable or inoffensive
or piquant, having an agreeably pungent taste
or mouth-watering, pleasing to the sense of taste
(from the Old French)

Take your pick! Dictionaries are so much fun!

mmm... Lecke!
