Good morning, good afternoon, good evening and Happy New Year! Welcome to the fourth installment of Southern Fried Vocab. In case you missed last week’s word, go catch up.
In case you’ve not caught the rules, they go a lil’ something like this: you will be given a vocabulary word or phrase, a definition and a sentence. You are hereby challenged to go forth and use it in conversation.
Though you may not see a logical place to insert these words into conversation, everything is always better when you cover it in flour and drop it in some hot grease!
The word of the week is wrench.
Wrench: to wash lightly, as by pouring water into or over or by dipping in water
Grandmother to grandchild – “Wrench that cup out and bring me some ice water.”
While you may use wrench as a noun, here, it is a verb and can usually be found in the sentence “wretch around and wrench it off.”
