If I make it back in time tonight, I’ll share a cool story. If I don’t, this will post as-is. And then I’ll share it tomorrow.
Yesterday I missed ABACK, ALACK, BECK, BEECH, BLACKBALL, BLECH, CABAL, CABALA, CACKLE, CELEB, and EACH.
LECH: informal, derogatory A lecher.
lecher: a lecherous person.
lecherous: Having or showing excessive or offensive sexual desire.
“lustful man, man given to excessive sexual indulgence,” late 12c., from Old French lecheor (Modern French lécheur) “one living a life of debauchery,” especially “one given to sexual indulgence,” literally “licker,” agent noun from lechier “to lick;” also “to live in debauchery or gluttony,” from Frankish *likkon or some other Germanic source, from Proto-Germanic *likkojan “to lick” (from PIE root *leigh- “to lick”). The Old French feminine form was lechiere. Middle English, meanwhile, had lickestre “female who licks;” figuratively “a pleasure seeker,” literally “lickster,” with -ster. In 18c. sometimes leacher (Bailey), along with leacherous, leachery.
