Word/sentence challenge

June 29, 2008 at 3:45 am (Read-a-thon)

Leave a comment OR blog yourself (you’re all doing both anyway, right?!)  for one or both (or neither?) of the following:

A – strangest new vocabulary word found during entire read-a-thon

B – most interesting /  annoying / favorite RUN ON sentence encountered.

My word? Asafoetida. Found in Gluten-Free Girl by Shauna James Ahern. It’s an Indian spice – a powdered gum resin. Apparently, it contains gluten or is packaged with gluten or something. I’m going to avoid it like the plague.

    PS We need to fix your link-back?! I think you have a box in your wordpress profile not filled out – worry abt it after the RAT.

    I’d never seen that word before. I’m not allergic to gluten, but I do generally avoid all spices like the plague 😛
