EDIT:

Freshet being not as obscure as I once thought it was, I have decided to cancel this round. (Note to self: never play Scrabble with this crowd.) I will try to find another, more suitable word.

Ai-ee, Alex--you may have to cancel this one. If I know a word, surely everybody does. I'll PM you with what I think it is, though, in case I'm wrong.

Well I got one other hint from someone that they knew the correct definition but also suggesting we play on.

If anyone thinks the word is not obscure enough then I can come up with another one.

With me, that makes three who know it, plus Alex. But it'd be fun anyway.

A word I come across but never use.

Sorry, but I know this word as well. However, as I'm leaving these shores on 17 December, don't mind me.

Max sez "Thanks for confirming that I really am nobody."

But you are OUR nobody and we love you.

I am also, of course, proof of the old truism:

Nobody's perfect.

some here may have only an inkling what this means, but I think most would be able to pick the multiply-choiced correct def'n. my thinking is that the only way to play a word such as this is to leave out the real deal and let people vote for the best phoney.

..or, perhaps there would be enough armilsŪ to confuse things and allow inclusion of the dictionary def'n.
