Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers out there. While I didn’t get to do it this year due to covid stuff, I look forward to next year having a regular Mother’s Day with flowers, a picnic, hugs. That’ll be nice, you know?
Yesterday I missed ALLAY, ARRAY, ARROYO, LOAMY, MAYO, MAYOR, MONONYM, NANNY, NONROYAL, and ONLY.
AMYL: informal short for amyl nitrite, a yellowish volatile synthetic liquid used medicinally as a vasodilator. It is rapidly absorbed by the body on inhalation, and is sometimes used for its stimulatory effects. Chemical formula: C₅H₁₁NO₂.
I was looking at pictures of amyl, and it all looks mad sketch. I don’t feel comfortable linking to anything or showing it on this blog.
MORAY: A mainly nocturnal eel-like predatory fish of warm seas, that typically hides in crevices with just the head protruding.
Definitely looks like it belongs on the set of ABC’s Dinosaurs, right?

ONLAY: An item of cloth, paper, etc., fixed on the surface of something, especially for decorative effect; a thin piece of leather, etc., mounted on the cover of a book for ornamentation.
