It's gotta be D. I might start using it even if it's not, as in, "Hey, you gigil, you"! wink

Candy must still be waiting on someone.. but it's been two(2) weeks since this was posted - typically after one week, a warning is given that time has expired and then soon thereafter.. too bad!

courtesy should be shown to those who have guessed as well as to those who just haven't gotten around tuit. (or you could LIU, like I did..)

It's not in the OED (at least, not in the brick and mortar OED) so it isn't really a word.

I think Candy is in jail.

And wrongo Faldage, the Hogwash word is a word. I found it in a book. It is spelled differently and pronounced differently and the meaning is not quite the same but it is still the Hogwash word.

Wanna bet? cool

Give the gal a break, guys! She is poorly sick at present. Not sure what, exactly: last I heard, (a week ago) she had a cold, but that is often the start of something else.

I was being snarky, jj. I know there's perfectly cromulent words that aren't in the dictionary. For example, try looking up "gullible".
