Word of the Week: truckle

Book Club: This Friday is the Slow Reader Post of The Way Home by Belle Calhoune. Also, the MIP October Book Club Selection  will be announced!

Last week’s Word of the Week (WOW) was fissiparous. Merriam-Webster defines fissiparous as: tending to break up into parts or divisive. Therefore, I think it’s safe to say that Congress is rather fissiparous these days. Would you agree???

Today’s WOW is truckle. Here are my definition guesses for truckle:

truckle: (ˈtrə-kəl) 1. a truck driver’s act of chuckling 2. a true cackle (I sense a theme here!) 3. a belt buckle that’s the size of a semi (That basically includes all belt buckles in Texas).

What’s your definition guess for truckle? Send it to me here.
