Today is April 30, 2008. Our delicious word for the day is “salmagundi” – pronounced sal-muh-GUHN-dee. It is a noun meaning:
1. A salad plate usually consisting of chopped meat, anchovies, eggs, and onions, served with oil and vinegar.
2. Any mixture or assortment; a medley; a potpourri; a miscellany.
I’d rather go out and shoot songbirds than stay inside and watch the dismal salmagundi of reality shows that dominate the air waves. “Salmagundi” – sounds like a great name for a restaurant, doesn’t it?
