I learned something new today.

This morning I finished reading "The End of Alice" and the narrator kept using the word frig. It never occurred to me that frig might be an actual word, so I looked it up on webster.com. Here's what they say:

Main Entry: frig
Pronunciation: 'frig
Function: intransitive verb
Inflected Form(s): frigged; frig·ging
Etymology: Middle English - fryggen - to wriggle
usually vulgar : COPULATE -- sometimes used in the present participle as a meaningless intensive

Goodness, it's a bad word!! Oops, guess I shouldn't use it in front of little kids.
