It'll be gone and he'll bring it back!
Mariah's post over at Constantly Risking Absurdity got me thinking. There are some words from our history that deserve a celebrated resurgence, like Mickey Rourke or Tab soda. I'm determined to bring these words back, among them:
scuttlebutt: So I always thought this word meant rumors, but apparently it means an open casket for drinking water in a nautical sense as well. Weird.
gams: As in, "Tina Turner has a fine set of gams on her."
cat/kitten: My sense of the word? "A devotee of jazz." Snap snap snap.
doll: Forget boo, forget woman, I'll always be a doll.
cracking wise: I'm just that kind of girl.
I'm noticing a pattern here...
What words are you bringing back, JT-style?
