I ran across a few new-to-me words this week.
These two are from Don’t Call Me a Crook! by Bob Moore. They were actually defined in the footnotes, which was kind of nice.
” We took two electic torches and some gin and a haversack“
flivver– a low-priced, little, and often old car.
“gangsters drove into the place in a flivver that had two machine guns mounted on it”
The other two are from Midnight Bayou by Nora Roberts.
allée– a walkway lined with trees or tall shrubs.
“The ancient live oaks that formed the allée dripped with water and moss”
spark– to engage in courtship; woo.
“And since you’re sparking me, you can call me Miss Odette.”
