Word of the Day
 
So my tragic (and true!) story about a bat attack was deemed amusing enough to win the Word of the Day yesterday!

Here s today s word:

algerining

The usual rules apply - no cheating by looking up the answer, no dictionary definitions - the funniest answer wins and will choose tomorrow s Word of the Day.

Happy guessing!

Turning something into Algae doesn t sound much better....

I think, it means "making miltiple mistakes(erring) in your algebra (alg) exercises":

OH, I VE BEEN ALGERINING AGAIN!"

ALGERINING :This is the soft gentle sound of algae growing.
 
al-ge - algae
rin-ing - A combination of ringing and whining
 
(So soft of course that you need an Algerining earpiece to hear it.)

Somebody who has an extreme enthusiasm for everything Algerian.  i.e. Geez, Peter is algerining again... ever since he came back from Algeria that s all he can talk about.

OK, new try...
Algerining is what my son calls grandma s (and sometimes my) comments on his lifestyle..
The "when I was your age" kind of talk.....
He calls it "All that geriatric whining" or "Algerining" in short
Typical scene:
He complains about the amount of homework.
I mention how much homework I did.
He growls: Mom could you just stop Algerining!
I reply "At least we learned to articulate!"
