Got this email today from Laurie D., with two terms I wasn’t familiar with.
“Hmmm, no Splaycember…how about celebrating the Bellydays? I grabbed this picture of my Greyhound Coco. She loves cockroaching. The name comes from the fact that they look like a dead bug when they sleep like this. From the looks of the detritus* around her, I believe she may have exhausted herself.”
*OK, this is a college word. “Detritus:”
Waste or debris of any kind:
“Streets filled with rubble and detritus”
Synonyms: debris · waste · refuse · rubbish · litter · scrap · flotsam and jetsam · rubble · remains · remnants · fragments · scraps · dregs · leavings · sweepings · dross · scum · trash · garbage · dreck. Powered by Oxford Dictionaries · © Oxford University Press.
