We played ‘Song Poetry’ today, and the lyrics were…
“You love me even when I fall apart
I can’t explain it
That’s just who you are
Don’t want perfection
You just want my heart.”
The song was ‘Through Your Eyes’ from Britt Nicole.
Tisha from Fredericktown called in and correctly guessed! Congratulations!
Here’s our word of the day: nudnik
noun || NOOD-nik (the “OO” is as in “good”)
This is a person who is a bore or nuisance.
The suffix -nik came to English through Yiddish (and ultimately from Polish and Ukrainian). It means “one connected with or characterized by being.” You might be familiar with beatnik, peacenik, or neatnik, but what about no-goodnik or allrightnik? The suffix -nik is frequently used in English to create nonce words that are often jocular or slightly derogatory. Some theorize that the popularity of the suffix was enhanced by Russian Sputnik, as well as Al Capp’s frequent use of -nik words in his L’il Abner cartoons. The nud- of the Yiddish borrowing nudnik ultimately comes from the Polish nuda, meaning “boredom.”
