Quite often I will say to some of my work mates "today's word is"
I will then give them a new word (to them) & challenge them to get it into conversation.

Today's word is "serendipity"

All catters reading this thread MUST use the word it it's correct context within 24 hours of reading this!

Report back!

"And in the Middle Ages, how concerned people who lived close to the world of nature were
with the feces of animals. And what a variety of names they had for
them: the Crotels of a Hare, the Friants of a Boar, the Spraints of
an Otter, the Werderobe of a Badger, the Waggying of a Fox, the Fumets
of a Deer. Surely there might be some words for the material so near
to the heart of Ozy Froats [an academic studying feces] than shit?
What about the Problems of a President, the Backward Passes of a
Footballer, the Deferrals of a Dean, the Odd Volumes of a Librarian,
the Footnotes of a Ph.D., the Low Grades of a Freshman, the Anxieties
of an Untenured Professor? "
-- Robertson Davies, "The Rebel Angels"

You choose shitty words, dear EmmaB!! :) This could be a whole thread in itself -- names for scat by profession. Broken strings of a folkie, the Leavings of Liverpuddlians, the backup of lorry drivers, and the mudkits of Mudcatters.

Great quote Amos- I was limited by alliteration

The professions that come to mind first.....
The dead wood of lumberjacks
The remnants of tailors
The surplus of clergymen
The stools of milkmaids

and nearer to home....
The cast-offs of ceilidh dancers!
