220114_LRWell this was a tough one. I could think of plenty of ways to exemplify the OED word of the day, but trying to get the right snap to go with it was far from easy. Today’s word is walker, but not as in pedestrian …., oh no, this is a sort of historic OMG. To quote the OED: ‘More fully Hookey (also Hooky) Walker: an exclamation expressing incredulity. Also occas. as n.: “nonsense”‘. But unlike OMG, it has nuances of untruthfulness. I was still racking my brains, when I spotted this and with a bit of ‘editing’, I’ve bagged my daily pic. Well, can there be a bigger load of walker than promising to stop the ageing process?

Day #22 of a 365 project, where the daily pic is informed by the OED word of the day.
