Word of the Day - Bedinner

Word of the Day for Friday, August 8th

bedinner, verb
1. to treat with a dinner, give a dinner to: To celebrate Molly's birthday on Saturday, I bedinnered her.

I discovered today's Word of the Day while listening to Morning Edition and heard this story about Ammon Shea, a man who read the entire Oxford English Dictionary FOR FUN and then wrote a book (Reading the OED: One Man, One Year, 21,730 Pages) about it.

WOD is inspired by Beth. (Here is a link to the entry on OED's site.)

I thought I commented on this yesterday, but apparently - no.

LOVE this new word. :) I should have bedinnered you instead of bedrinking you! :)
