Hello from Day 3 of the unwise reopening of California. It’s supposed to rain heavily tomorrow, so I guess we’ll see how much outside dining will be going on.
Yesterday I missed GLOOP, PELT, POET, and POLYP.
LOLLOP: Move in an ungainly way in a series of clumsy paces or bounds.
TELETYPE: A kind of teleprinter.
TOPOLOGY: The study of geometric properties and spatial relations unaffected by the continuous change of shape or size of figures. Not the same as topography. An example of a topological map is a public transportation system map. The stops and relative locations matter, but a lot of other detail is lost. Topographic maps are the ones that show the circles for hills.
