What a great word! I am so thankful for the “permission” to play with it and not feel the repercussions of cultural appropriation!

I’m so glad you like it!! ❤ ❤ I was so nervous after posting it, because I wasn't sure how people would take it. But I have always enjoyed learning new words from different parts of the world and playing with them from a very different angle, so I hope it's okay. Have fun!!
Good word choice. I’ve been too busy to check in for a few days so I missed it. A word from my home, my childhood…brilliant!
