You gotta love kids. Diseases must since my kids seem to bring home every stomach flu or virus known to man. I fell off the A to Z wagon unfortunately due to being bedridden for a bit. That means I will have to cheat a bit and put up the last 3 posts today.
In any event, the first word is Xyster which means:
a surgical instrument for scraping bone
This is a totally cool word, and I absolutely have to use it in a crime or horror story someday. Just the imagery of scraping bone (especially if it's on a victim rather than a patient) sends chills down my spine. I can definitely see a place for this word with the right malicious or devious (or potentially insane) character.
Any other cool ideas you can come up with for this word?
