Word of the Day: titivate
I really love it when they do potentially naughty sounding words for the Word of the Day. Today’s word of the day is:
titivate: to smarten up; to spruce.
One of the examples they use is:
In The Idle Class, when Chaplin is titivating in a hotel room, the cloth on his dressing table rides up and down, caught in the same furious gusts.
— Peter Conrad, Modern Times, Modern Places
Hmmm. Titivating in the hotel room huh? When there’s free HBO and Cinemax, I guess that’s just natural.
I’ll be around. Titivating in my bathroom, exacerbating in my room (knock before you come in!) and watching a titular actress in a movie.
