Vest-Pocket Vocabulary

Lusk’ish, a. inclined to laziness.

Word in the Wild: Stavros was glad Pekoe didn’t scratch or bite, but he thought maybe she should hunt or prowl or, you know, at least move or something. He’d never seen a more luskish cat in all his life and was beginning to wonder if he should take her to the vet.

This word sounds exactly like I feel after lunch when the sun’s streaming in my window. Luskish—I love it.
