W is for Whelve


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?

  4. While I was watching 'Upgrade' I kept racking my brains trying to workout where I had seen a similar story before. 123movies free When I finally worked it out I realised why it had taken me so long to get there. It was because it was a book I was thinking of rather than a movie. Dan Brown's latest novel 'Origin' follows a very similar concept and story. Both are unbelievably good in their own way. zmovie 'Upgrade' was quite different to what I was expecting. Pretty much every film Leigh Whannell has played a part in making to date has been horror based. Now while there is the odd dash of extreme violence here and there, this certainly doesn't fall into the horror category.watch full movies online free Turns out the man can nail more than one genre.
