interstices

I will predict with immense confidence that mine was the only PS to tred dangerously and sensuously and timorously betwixt the interstices of pop culture and Jewish mysticism with the phrase "bizarro twin doppelganger."

I don't think I used any high-falutin 50-cent words at all... I'm a disgrace to my major.  ::)
