Each week, I’m going to present an amazing word. A word that has a double meaning either directly or perhaps through origin, where is has evolved into a new meaning, or carries a wonderful Onomatopoeic effect.
This week my amazing word is:
Oh, how I love a good Canoodle on a Friday night, for nothing sets the heart beating faster than the caress of a lover.
Canoodle, meaning to pet or fondle is laden with sexual promise, maybe the Swedish promise of Knulla or fornication, from which some belief the word first came (sorry, I could not resist that one.)
I like to think of it as encouraging a caress a bit too far and enticing a welcome fondle; canoodle.
Either way it is a wonderful word because even without a definition you just naturally know it is intimate secret shared by only two people.
