  1. I've always lived in the South where you don't need balaclavas, but I knew that word for some odd reason. Thanks for participating!

  2. That is a word that always bugs me when I see it as I picture some kind of weird black scarf/ski mask kind of thing. Like Bermudaonion, I am Southern and we don't wear hats down here so maybe that's why.

  3. What a fun word! I might go around the house saying that all day. Happy blogging. 🙂

  4. Kathy: Your welcome….thank you for hosting. I am thinking since I am learning so many new words because of this meme, that I should make myself a "wonderous word" journal so I don't forget. I have those two awful conditions….senior moments (sometimes hours lol) and CRS.

    Carin: I am getting the same picture in my mind when I see this word in my current read.

    Sharla: LOL as long as you say it in the house. Not sure what people would think if you did it elsewhere lol.

  5. We certainly know this word in Canada. I get nervous when I see someone wearing one, though. You never know who could be underneath it. I have a post here if you're interested.
