In browsing through the dictionary (like you do) I found a word you should add to your vocabulary. Here it is:
So that's "Mummock (n): an old coat fit to put on a scarecrow."
So handy. As in "You look nice." "What, this old mummock? I just threw it on!".
This is the one and only dictionary I tear up when making collages. It's been going for years, and there are still good words it. Funny that.
When I find another copy in an op shop, I'm going to buy it, and keep that copy un-chopped up - because it has awesome words in it!
