  1. hmm…you just made me remember that i have a new favorite word. but…… i can’t quite seem to remember what it was.

      1. nah…it wasn’t sammich – sammich is a given! =] i actually could use one of those right about now. wish i could remember the word…it was a GOOD one!!!

          1. nope…still not it. i think it actually meant dirt or dirty or something along that line…

          2. nope…….found it……..PRUT! not as impressive now. not sure why i liked it – probably lack of sleep at the time.

          3. a friend of mine was looking for another word for dirt – it was one of the ones a thesaurus suggested. mire, mung, & loam were a couple others……oooh!
