Prink it Out!

In High School English class we had to learn different WODs (words of the day) and WOWs (Words of the Week). Although it may not come across in my writing, they greatly expanded my vocabulary.

Luckily, you can get WODS delivered to your inbox every day via dictionary.com. Subscribe for free here, why not? My friend Trent just forwarded me yesterday's entry. He didn't know why, but when he read the definition of "PRINK," he thought of me. Sweet.

Word of the Day

Prink
\PRINGK\, transitive verb:
1. To dress up; to deck for show.

intransitive verb:
1. To dress or arrange oneself for show; to primp.

Tara has supermodel legs and is already getting used to being prinked and coiffed as she prepares for her first beauty contest in the autumn.

-- Raffaella Barker, "Diary hatched, matched and almost despatched", Daily Telegraph, September 6, 1997

As you see, PRINK can be both transitive, and intransitive (we love a versatile verb) and should definitely be used in more situations than just Miss Tara's supermodel legs!

So try it at home, try it on the streets. Use it, learn it, prink yourself all over town. This is one reason to love education.

Because--put simply--the more you prink, the better you feel.
