Word of the Week #91 - eructation

(I know I usually post these on Tuesday, but I really couldn't resist this one. It is so perfect for my house. Yes, I have boys.)

eructation - [ih-ruhk-TAY-shuhn] - noun

Definition:
The act of belching; a belch.

Usage:
It is a cruel trick of fate that I cannot perform an eructation on demand, despite all the boys that surround me on a regular basis.

*Doesn't that sound a little more classy than belch?

I've struggled with the desire to be able to eructate on demand and have only just recently figured it out. Hmm...would people look at us funny if I tried to give you lessons at Storymakers? =P

Ooohhhh...that is a classy word. I'll have to remember it especially as my hubs seems to think he needs to raise it to an art form. Oy!
