161014 Time to Perhorresce

By October 16, 2014zBlog Archives

Whilst mooching around the shops, we came upon one emporium getting ready for Christmas. That was enough to make me “perhorresce” (‘trans. and intr. To shudder (at)’, OED). I do question how long those pine needles will stay on the branches … we usually start hoovering them up within 24 hours of the wretched thing going up. And we won’t be putting ours up until the 24th December!

Day #285 of a 365 project, where the daily pic is informed by the OED word of the day.
