This is the last week of the A to Z Challenge! We're almost at the finish line! Let's celebrate with some vocabulary.
Today's word is: WHELVE
Whelve has a couple of definitions, though unlike the definitions for godwottery, you can see the similarity between these.
1. To turn a vessel upside down so as to cover something.
2. To cover up with anything; to hide, bury.
Reasons to know this word:
-I didn't know that the time I turned a large mixing bowl upside down to cover a cake so the flies wouldn't land on it, I'd actually whelved it. That sounds kinda badass for such a mundane activity.
-When writing, you can say something dramatic like "I whelved my feelings for him in the hope that I might forget them." Cool, right?
