If anyone's still reading my blog (ahem), I have to apologize for not posting very often. With a 6 month old daughter, a busy job and a book due tomorrow to my publisher (aaack!), I've been fairly preoccupied.
However, that does not mean I have not been using and thinking of funny words all the time. So...here's the latest:
funny word of the day: quaff
Definition from Merriam-Webster:
: to drink deeply
: to drink (a beverage) deeply
— quaff noun
— quaff·er noun
My own example: Once I hand in the manuscript for my book, BE YOUR OWN BEST PUBLICIST: How to Use PR Techniques to Get Noticed, Hired and Rewarded at Work, written with my talented friend and co-author Meryl Weinsaft Cooper, I will definitely be quaffing some wine or Champagne in celebration!
