Fibbing Friday — What’s in a Word?

Di (aka Pensitivity101) hosts Fibbing Friday, a silly little exercise where we are to write a post with our answers to the ten questions below. But as the title suggests, truth is not an option. The idea is to fib a little, a lot, tell whoppers, be inventive, silly, or even outrageous, in our responses. For this week’s Fibbing Friday, Di wants to know what these words mean…

1. Census — it’s the name for a teacher, like sensei in martial arts, expect one who specializes in counting things, as in, “Census, please teach me to count my chickens before they hatch.”
2. Probate — a debate between two professional politicians, as in, “Did you watch the probate on TV last night?”
3. Bayou — an expression someone from the southern United States says when saying goodbye to a close friend just before or after hugging them, as in, “Hey girl, come give me a hug before y’all runoff. Bayou.”
4. Crackerjack — a nickname for a well-dressed man, as in, “Get a load of the threads on that crackerjack over there.”
5. Chirrup — a word used to convey a wish for things to get better for someone who is down and out, as in, “Hey, Pete, chirrup, it coulda been worse.”
6. Fermium — a marketing term used to describe the firmness level of premium mattresses, as in “Our luxury mattresses have the highest level of fermium on the market.”
7. Surcingle — the incision scar remaining after a surgical procedure and removal of the stitches, as in, “Oh my God, look at the size of your surcingle.”
8. Withe — the pronunciation of the word “wife” by someone with a lisp, as in, “I now pronounth you huthband and withe.”
9. Gainsay — a profit in a crypto coin transaction, as in “Melvin had quite the gainsay when he sold off his Bitcoins.”
10. Titular — a very well endowed woman, as in, “Please, Robert, stop gawking at that titular woman over there.”
