Word o’ The Week (VII)

And last week’s winner is…Chris Bulock! His entry for the word crowtsin (adj) was:

Used to describe a woman above the age of 37, clad in a drab sweater, living in a dusty apartment, with a penchant for weak tea and a love of botanical book illustrations. The minister was not surprised to find that only a few members of the local garden club had shown up to the funeral of Ms. Judith Splurt, a most crowtsin woman.

Congratulations, man! Your prize this week is… anything you want from my freezer. I have many exciting options, including Otter Pops in a variety of flavors, old almonds, and one (1) fudgesicle that bought when I moved into my place two years ago.

And let’s not forget this week’s word that so desperately needs defining. It’s…

crivled(KRIV-uld) adjective
