Word of the Day (WOD)
Hello all my international friends!
I have been selected as the "Word of the Day King" for today--shower me with Daffadowndillies!  I doubt I will ever see the promised $1,000,000, but there are more important things in life than money.
Without further ado, here is the newest Word of the Day:

dip-so-mania, a.k.a. dipaholism: An obsession (> mania) with dipping (bread, bread sticks etc.) into sauces and the like, a lot (> so much > so).
People here in Greece tend to suffer a lot from that condition: It is called "papara (παπάρα)-mania" or "ladobouki (λαδομπούκι)-mania" and the main symptom is dipping your bread in the olive oil of your salad until there �s no olive oil (with just a flavour of tomato, onion and feta cheese) left.

Dipsomania is a medical condition also as sleepswimming. Like sleepwalking, the sufferer goes one step further by swimming, or taking a dip, in the nearest swimming pool while still asleep. The swimmer swims a few laps, gets out of the pool, and goes back to bed without ever waking up. In the morning, he is awakened, not by coffee perking in the pot, but by a strong smell of chlorine. Confused, he gets out of bed and heads for the shower, thinking, I �ve got to change my laundry detergent to unscented. It �s the official medical term for this terrible condition.
