  1. I’ve never heard of these words before so your definition could have been the correct one and I wouldn’t have known the difference. Sound plausible to me.

    • Thanks, Janet! Words and their meanings are strange sometimes. I always wonder who decided a word spelling and meaning came about. Was there a vote taken, and what we see now was the winner? haha! 🙂

  2. Mystery box chicken – oh my gosh, this gave me a chuckle 🙂 Is that something you have at your home? How cute!

    And I learned something new today! Always a pleasure coming here to see you 🙂 ♥

    • Thanks, Holly!
      Well, the chickens are just something I play around with for the A to Z blog challenges. I’ve done this for a few years. Otherwise they stay in my craft desk. It’s fun to do. Glad you like them! 🙂
