Word of the Day
Wednesday, May 2, 2007
Strippercise (verb) - Yes, it's really a word; to exercise by combining stretching with seductive (and that's the operative word) dance moves that an occupational stripper might employ (Funny, there's no real etymology on this one, but let's do some intuitive/deductive reasoning here - exercise is from Middle English and Latin exercere and strip is from Old English (be)striepan - so this word is not as "new" as one might think. Or it could be from Depeche Mode and Adam Ant...)

Word in a Sentence: In Sandy Lender's novel Choices Meant for Gods, Chariss stuns her dragon companion when she reveals to him that she once strippercised for the prince of Jovera. (Of course she didn't remove any clothing! Chariss is a good girl, and Nigel would be-bop over here to this blog from and rip me a new one for suggesting otherwise.)

Your turn! Can you bust a move for me with a sentence of your own today?

"Some days, I just want the dragon to win."
