Word of the Week!

I can't believe it's Wednesday already - almost Thursday! Madness.

Anyway, here's this weeks word for you:

Bowfin
definition: disgusting, smelly.
pronounced: bow-fin. 'bow' as in to bow down, not as in to tie a bow.


"Ocht! That's pure bowfin! I think someone pumped!"
(Oh! That's totally gross. I think someone passed wind!) (If I say
fart my mum'll give me into trouble.)

Where do you come up with this stuff anyway? You crack me up! By the way, are you an Indian giver? Maybe you could pick a day to share with other "figures of speech" and this week it could be "Indian Giver". Good idea? :)

pumped?? that is a new word for it...my friend says Puffed. I think it is funny all the words we say for gas out the back end, my mom hates the word fart too!

sarah: Where do I get these words from? They're Scottish. I know how excited you'll be to use them now!

Marnee: Perfect usage ;)

Stacia: It's quite funny because there were words we were never allowed to use when I was younger ie. we were never allowed to say 'aye' instead of yes. My mum's the one who uses the words we weren't allowed but not 'fart'...
