Word of the day for Tuesday, July 13th

Benny and I got this word game for Christmas a couple of years ago called Quiddler. It’s a good game, but the best part of the game is saying the name. The most satisfying way to say the name is to take your fingers and wiggle them in a sinister manner, stand on one foot, and speak in a witchy voice. “Watch out for the Quiddler…”. Eeek. Good game. I can’t even remember how the real game is played, it’s so satisfying to just say the name.

Anyway. I just found out what the word actually means.

Horror and Fantasy fonts

According to the Grandiloquent Dictionary, a quiddler is a person who hangs around wasting time at work and talks to people who are actually working. Watch out for the Quiddler.
