Word of the Week: frisson

Book Club ReadersI’m a little bit behind on my Undaunted reading. You, too? Guess we need to create a little more room for reading this week, hunh?

Last week’s WOW (Word of the Week) was jape. Merriam-Webster Online says that jape means: to say or do something jokingly or mockingly. If that is the case, then I jape a lot. In fact we could probably say I’m a jape-aholic. Is there a Japers Anonymous group? And yes, I just japed. 😀

Today’s WOW is frisson. I usually offer up 3 possibilities, but today 4 popped to mind pretty quickly, so you’re getting a bonus guess today. (I know…this just made your Monday, right?) Here are my definition attempts for frisson:

frisson: (frē-ˈsōⁿ) 1. freezing with a French accent 2. an area where you can do whatever you want 3. frizzy fission 4. the unruly hair of a son when it’s humid outside

What do you think frisson means? Submit your definition guess below!
