My kitchen would be cleaner if it were tiled with ice.

06 Aug

besom – n.  a broom made of a bundle of twigs tied together

Classical Usage:  Nastasya, the cook and cleaning girl for Raskolnikov’s room, and I have similar sweeping ethics, . . . only once a week, just by accident, she would sometimes take a besom to it.

Classically Mad Usage:  I may not be using this word with any regularity right now, but you can bet in two years it should become a staple in the house.  You see, I enjoy the Summer Olympics, but I really, really enjoy the Winter Olympics.  In particular, I love watching the curlers strategically use their besoms to gain a win.
