Word of the Week 2: baba

Dictionary --Word of the Week

Good morning, Word Lovers! It tickles me to see some of the $ 20 word discussions at the FB web site page. Oh. My. And I am in utter love with the submissions from last week’s post on the definition for last week’s word. And that leads me to…

For those of you wondering, fanfaronade was the Word of the Week last Monday and its definition is “empty boasting.” So, does this mean I get partial credit for my 3rd definition???

Today’s Word of the Week is: (Where are the percussionists in the family when I need a drumroll?) baba. (I may actually be able to pronounce this one!)

Same rules apply as from last week–no dictionaries allowed! Thus, submit a comment with your definition and we’ll see who gets the closest.

Here’s my attempt:

baba (bä-bä): 1. the sounds a baby makes when a sheep walks by. 2. the slang version of “baby” when Rudy Huxtable is lip-syncing a song from her parents’ era in honor of her grandparents’ wedding anniversary 3. the sounds an MIP blogger makes before she has her morning coffee.

If I get it right, do I get to engage in some fanfaronade? ;D Your turn!

Tomorrow’s blog: Have you finished your mission for 26 Tuesdays? Last chance to let me know so I can include you in this week’s tally. 🙂

    Yes I completed my 1st of 26 Tuesdays. I believe I was blessed as much if not more than the recepient. What a good feeling. God is Good.

    I’m feeling a Russian vibe. A type of bonnet? A type of roll? A term of endearment?

    The term of endearment is the LSH’s idea as well.
