Aren't You Saucy?

funny word of the day: saucy

Definition from Merriam-Webster:

Pronunciation: \ˈs-sē, ˈsa-\
Function: adjective
Inflected Form(s): sauc·i·er; sauc·i·est
Date: 1508

1 : served with or having the consistency of sauce
2 a : impertinently bold and impudent b : amusingly forward and flippant : irrepressible
3 : smart, trim

sauc·i·ly \-sə-lē\ adverb

sauc·i·ness \-sē-nəs\ noun

I especially like how Merriam-Webster uses the phrase "a saucy little hat" as an example. When have you ever heard anyone say that?
