Word of the Day
Truckle
(intransitive verb) – to yield weakly; to be submissive; also a noun meaning a caster or a small wheel, but I like the verb for today's word because it reminds me of an ex-husband's character trait… he he he (etymology: from Latin "trochlea" meaning a system of pulleys)

Word in a Sentence: In the fantasy novel Choices Meant for Gods, the pitiful orphan Sorne Jeel truckles to any and all members of the Taiman household as if he is a servant and not an adopted son.

I shall not be a truckle any longer to those who look down upon me. From now on, I will stand up for myself.
