Word Wednesday- June 4, 2014- Gubbins

Standard

Today’s word is GUBBINS. I recently learned this from one of my British friends.  It’s a pretty cool word and has several meanings, all of them British.

(1) fish parings or refuse; or more broadly, any bits and pieces (scraps)

(2) gadgets

(3) a foolish or futile person (simpleton)- such as “you silly gubbins”

Try to use this in a sentence this week and see what looks you get.  LOL
