Three words of the day, pulled from various short stories:
Mackinaw coat: refers to a heavy and dense woolen water-repellant cloth
peat: a brown, soil-like substance made of decomposed vegetable matter
liturgy: an official list according to which religious worship is conducted
1. Love that distinct, classic color of Mackinaw coats. What is it called: detective? Coffee stain? Camel turd?
2. PEAT! Perhaps that’s it.
3. The sisters watched The Princess Bride so often that various lines– including the rhymes between Fezzik, Inigo and Vizzini– became a liturgy of sorts. Whenever one started “Fezzik, are there rocks ahead?” the other responded, “If there are, we’ll all be dead!” and “No more rhymes now, I mean it!” was invariably answered with, “Anybody want a peanut?”
