Lost Language: Firkytoodle


One of my housemates (Marissa) gave me this eclectic book for my birthday, knowing my affinity for language and it’s quirks. The book is full of “lost” words and phrases, and let me tell you, there are some gems in here.

Let me introduce you to a new word I just learned from this book:

firkytoodle (verb): to cuddle or fondle.
“Let’s make margaritas and firkytoodle in front of the fire.”

I don’t know whether to say “I’m sorry” or “You’re welcome.”
