Woohoo! The weekend is here! I got some good news today that I’ll share at some point. I don’t want to be one to tease without following through, so I’ll make sure to follow through. I just don’t yet know when.
Yesterday I missed ABBOT, ABHOR, AMMO, AORTA, BAMBOO, BAOBAB (damn!), BARROOM, BOBA, BOMB, MOMMA, OATH, ROTATOR, TATTOO, THROAT, THROB,
HABOOB: A violent and oppressive wind blowing in summer, especially in Sudan, bringing sand from the desert.
TROTH: Faith or loyalty when pledged in a solemn agreement or undertaking.
From the Online Etymological Dictionary:
“truth, verity,” late 12c., from a phonetic variant of Old English treowð “faithfulness, veracity, truth;” see truth, which is a doublet of this word. Restricted to Midlands and Northern England dialect after 16c., and to certain archaic phrases (such as plight one’s troth). Also see betroth.
Day two in a row of missing something to do with engagement. Oh noes.
