    He was the sort of man who would make you smile in utter bliss, before he would stab you.
    I long for the day when MS stands for mystery solved!

    He was the sort of man that relished in the odour of his own dump.

    (I work in a building with a lot of men and there is a distinct fragrance seeping out from the men's toilets...it affects my sense of humour)

    From a purely grammatic viewpoint, one does not 'relish in' the odour of anything. 'Relished' would work, as would 'went into raptures over'.

    Thanks Ox, but...I said relished? I am confused - it is incorrect?

    'Relished' alone, without the word 'in', is what I meant. In my explanation sentence, I simply used the present tense - relish. Don't worry. You'll get there.

    He was the sort of man who'd accost you at a red light, washing your windscreen before demanding payment.

    He was the sort of man who said "The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish."

    He was the sort of man who played the piano and wrote at the same time.

    He was the sort of man who counted every grey hair on his chest, cringing when a new one appeared.
