Mark Peters writes "Wordlust of the day will indeed be updated every day or very nearly. So far Iâ€™ve covered great words like â€œsqueegee,â€? â€œphlegm,â€? â€œbootylicious,â€? â€œspokes-fembot,â€? â€œBible,â€? and â€œbongo.â€? Future words may include â€œpalooka,â€? â€œwazoo,â€? â€œhamster-kissing,â€? â€œpuppycide,â€? â€œbridezilla,â€? â€œcreepy-uncle-y,â€? and â€œbalderdash.â€? Itâ€™s a big language!
I hope youâ€™ll read the blog, and if you have the chance, please comment on it too.
Today's word of the day is "bongo," not because of any inherent greatness in the word or musical instrument, but because of a truly amazing book that tells many a tale of woe, weirdos and bongos: The Police Log by Kevin L. Hoover."
