Word of the Week: froward

Book Club Readers: I’ve read the first few chapters of Beating GoliathIt never occurred to me that the Branch Davidian debacle had a negative impact on Baylor. How about you?

Children of the Day Post: Beth didn’t mince words about yet another tricky topic. Make sure you “tune in” Wednesday for a recap and my thoughts about this week’s homework so far.

Last week’s WOW (Word of the Week) was bonnyclabber. According to Merriam-Webster Online a bonnyclabber is the same thing as clabber. If you, like me, didn’t know what clabber is, the hubby and the daughter were right about this one: sour milk that has thickened or curdled. Thanks to the uneven dairy consumption rates at my home, clabber is something I ought to know all too well! That makes 2 in a row for the hubby and the daughter is getting way too many of these correct. I suppose that shouldn’t surprise me, knowing the intellects involved of both parties.

This week’s WOW is froward and no, that’s not a typo. Here are my guesses for froward:

froward (ˈfrō-(w)ərd) 1. Frodo moving in a forward pattern 2. a common typo for forward 3. the forward movement of a TCU football team playing an Oklahoma team 🙂
