Weird Word Thursday: Vol. 4

Thursday, March 25, 2010

I know word verification is not going away anytime soon, but I figure I can at least have a little fun with it. So, I present you with Weird Word Thursday. Each week, I will feature my favorite non-word from the many word verifications I've encountered and make up a definition. This week...

Crosting [kraws-ting]
-noun
hardened frosting; frosting that has crusted

Example: "Tamika was disappointed when she opened the box of left over cake and saw crosting around the edges."


Got a better definition? Leave it in a comment, no word verification required.

I LOVE this word! Yes, crosting = food rejection in my house!

I thought I had made up a word for my boys' backsides. I'd say, "Run upstairs for your bath or I'm going to spank your 'Babushka.'" I mean, it sounded so perfect, so playful.

And then my DIL (before she was the DIL) turned to my son and said, "Why is she going to spank her grandmother?" She had done missionary work somewhere in or near Romania, and apparently, that is the word for grandmother.

To this day, that was one of the most disappointing vocabulary moments of my life!

It was a definite crusting experience!

Love the new Weird Word Day idea! Would love to know where you got the word and it's definition. I'm really into weird words and I'm just curious. I checked in wordsmyth.com and it isn't even included.

I love the way you make up these words. I make up words all the time because my family inspires me with their reactions to things. But I must say, crosting is one of my favs so far. I actually like crosting because it is a little hard like candy on the outside, yet creamy on the inside like frosting ♥

Ha! I think "crosting" should really be accepted as a word into the dictionary.
