More words that I Need to Use

More words from 'The Meaning of Tingo', which I picked up yesterday (and have been giggling through ever since.

uitwaaien (Dutch): To walk in windy weather for fun.

and iktsuarpok (Inuit): To go outside often to see if someone is coming.

Nah, I don't do either of things. Riiiiiight. I've been known to unzip my coat so that i can make big wings and lean into the wind and walk downhill...and if you've ever seen me before a party, you know that I absolutely iktsuarpok.

I cannot recommend this book highly enough -- it's had me laughing out loud for hours.
