it was amazing

Recommended for: people who like words

I've read this book for years (while sitting on the john, mostly). Recently my friends expressed disgust at this practice and now refuse to pick up the volume when visiting. This, of course, is their loss, because this book is the next best dictionary after the OED. Impress your friends (or alienate them, depending) by displaying vocabulary for the simplest moments in daily life that never had a one-word expression before. Probably also a fun game to play while drinking (that's how the book was written, after all).
