It wasn't in the Encarta on-line dictionary ... closest I could find was floccillation ... meaning aimless plucking of bedclothes as a sign of impending death! Don't have time to look farther right now. Wondering how many on-line dictionaries I'll have to check. What the heck! You get the prize for stumping me (perhaps others). Overwhelmingly good! - silveryaspen, 2008-03-06: 11:36:00

Found the word on dictionary.com. I think I'll try to master the pronunciation to impress the floccin' office dictionary. - purpleartichokes, 2008-03-06: 17:57:00

Thanks purpleartichokes for saving me a search thru several sites! Thank you stache for adding a big long word to my vocabulary! Probably as valuable to me as the definition! - silveryaspen, 2008-03-06: 19:35:00

Love the 'toon today James. I think my boss is considering installing one on our bathroom doors, complete with an age-appropriate timer, which leaves me wondering when I'm gonna get a chance to pluck my eyebrows.
