Word Wednesday

Standard

One of my British friends used the word LURGEY the other day and it sounded like a cool word so I Googled it.

LURGEY is a fictitious, highly infectious disease akin to what we in America call cooties.

Here at World Wide Words is a cool history of the word. Check out Michael Quinion’s blog. He’s a fount of information.
