Happy Labor Day! Hope you are able to spend quality time with your family and/or friends today.

Last week’s Word of the Week (WOW) was roseate. Merriam-Webster Online defines roseate as: resembling a rose especially in color or overly optimistic (viewed favorably). Does referencing dogs eating roses partially count? I sure hope so, because that was one of my guesses last week.

This week’s WOW is tchotcke. I think the more difficult part of trying to define this word is merely pronouncing it! But, here are my lousy guesses for this week:

tchotcke: (chäch-kə, ˈtsäts-) 1. the key that Chachi sang in 2. a 50 point word in Scrabble because you used all your crazy letters 3. the thought that makes you think you can actually guess at the definition of words with 6 consonants and only 2 vowels.

What’s your guess for tchotcke? Leave a comment below!
