Just Jazzy 197

soap-lock (n) a lock of hair worn on the temple and kept smoothly in place by being soaped:  hence, any lock brushed apart from the rest of the hair and carefully kept in position.

sackbut (n) a medieval musical instrument of the trumpet family

"I wear my soap-lock on my forehead and play sackbut in a marching band!"  How totally awesome is that for an answer when somebody asks what you do?

  1. Erg, marymtf, hoped everyone had forgotten that one. My mom used to say it to me all the time–the second half, especially.

    Grandmalin, one of my favorite memories involving one of my sons was an evening when he and I went through the dictionary choosing words for each other and inventing our own definitions for them. Ours were far superior to those on the written pages.

    Surely, for “sackbut”, either of us would have come up with something far more creative than a mere horn. Perhaps a burlap tube–it WOULD be a sack, but everything you put in falls out. And soap-lock? Post-zombie-apocalypse, soap-locks will be vital, soap being a prized trade commodity highly subject to theft. Even zombies like to feel fresh at times.
