Father of Tabitha

Retromingent adjective Cowardly (literally, 'urinating backward).
I'd been taught the word back in grammar school but had never seen it again until a link provided by DD had it as their Weird Word of the Week.

You rang?


Not sure which article that was, but it's a good word.

Lions are apparently retromingent. Makes a lot of sense, unless you like walking in your own pee.

John I love coming to your blog because you're a never ending source of useless information.

Dude when am I gonna use that in a sentence?!?
