So, are you purusing the dictionary every evening to locate the most obscure and archaic words that you can locate?

I am unimpressed by the word itself,but the photos are glorious. As soon as I read the definition, I began singing, "follow the yellow brick road, follow the yellow brick road, follow, follow, follow, follow......" Hee! Hee!
