Word of the Week: bosky

Last week’s word was nepenthe. Can I just state, for the record, that it was darn hard to come up with definitions for nepenthe??? How about you? Did you think it was difficult, too?

The real definition of nepenthe is as follows: a potion used by the ancients to induce forgetfulness of pain or sorrow. Apparently, I need a nepenthe for my inability to define nepenthe. Maybe I just need more coffee? There’s always room for more coffee, right? (Kinda like that one dessert Bill Cosby used to promote!)

Today’s word is bosky. I chose it because we live near a river (In our town it more resembles a stream or brook.) with a similar name. I expect to see a lot of comments from my local readers on this one.

bosky: (ˈbäs-kē) 1. a brook or stream pretending to be a river. 2. an overfed duck that stalks walkers/runners as they train for the next long-distance run/walk beside a brook or stream pretending to be a river. 3. a key belonging to a boss

What are your guesses for bosky?
