I was actually so desperate for inspiration I began browsing the Collins English Dictionary and, blimey, it was the best fun I have had in ages. Some words are just so cool.
I will be saving some up for later in the challenge but here are my top three J’s that I now don’t know how I have possibly survived so long without knowing.
Jack-by-the-hedge: Noun. Another name for garlic mustard.
Really? Is this really true?
Jalopy, or jaloppy: Noun. Informal a dilapidated old car.
Ok, so this one kind of sounds about right but I particularly love that even the dictionary cannot decide how to spell it.
Jillaroo: Noun. Australian informal a female jackeroo.
Nope, still none the wiser.
So there you have it folks. This blog is nothing if not educational.
No, don’t thank me, glad to be of service.
Now I’m just gonna grab my Jillaroo, hop in my jaloppy and whizz down the shops as am getting low on jack-by-the-hedge.
