There are some places that are worth going. There are some places that aren’t. Before COVID, Calah and I went to EP & LP for a birthday party. Awful. Really, really bad. Then there’s Mama Shelter. Way better than EP & LP. It’s trendy with a long line, but the people who work there are as good as the prices are high. Which is to say very.
Yesterday I missed: DEED, DEEDED, DEFIED, DEIFIED, DITTO, DOXX (THOUGH I FOUND DOXXED AND DOXED), FIFED, FITTED, FOODIE, FOXED, TIDITED, TOED, TOOTED, and TOTED.
FETID: Smelling extremely unpleasant.
early 15c., from Latin fetidus (commonly, but incorrectly, foetidus) “stinking,” from fetere “have a bad smell, stink.” This is perhaps connected with fimus “dung,” or with fumus “smoke.”
