Brit' Word of the Day....

Today's BWOTD is used to describe someone:

"She's so unbelievably cackhanded it's scary!"

'Cackhanded' = Clumsy

This is without doubt a phrase that has and could be applied to me on a regular basis. I doubt very much I have ever got through a whole month without being cackhanded at some point, as my family and friends would confirm!

My latest offering would be the injured toe episode!

oh I am totally cackhanded too. Especially in the morning before I've had coffee. I need coffee to be able to operate the coffee machine.

Oh that would describe me perfectly. Hence the tripping over the pooper scooper incident. Thanks for the lesson! Have a great weekend!

Emerging Writer said...

I thought cackhanded meant left-handed (implying clumsy)

Rhea said...

I'm also cackhanded. Totally. Horribly. Embarrassingly.

Mare said...

Since I've been told jokingly that my middle name must be 'Grace', I guess that this word would describe me!

Hey, I've got a question! When someone says, "Sod it", what exactly does that mean and is it considered really rude, or just sort of cranky?

Brit' Gal Sarah said...

Hey Pamela, it's a way to indicate annoyance at something as opposed to someone. More cranky than rude.

Usually it's also something you would just mutter to yourself, when something goes awry.

This is a new one for me! When I took my daughter to Britain 11 years ago, she started a "British Dictionary" to keep track of all the different expressions. And we speak the same English, right? Hah!
lol
