Who, What, When, Where & Why. But What About Wifty?
Merriam-Webster’s word-of-the-day is wifty, which it defines as “eccentrically silly, giddy, or inane : ditzy.”
A search indicates we’ve never used the word, even though we’ve covered many wifty stories.
For other weird words we should find uses for, check @HaggardHawks, where the word-of-the-day is bezoardical, an adjective that means “all-curing, antidotal.” They’re also pointing to “driffle,” which is best known as slight rain or snow but also can be “a large quantity of work completed hastily.” Isn’t driffling what we do every day?
