DaisyMae's "Word of the Day": WONK

Here's another informative vocabulary lesson to build your FELINE LEXICON ...

From DaisyMae's Feline Dictionary of Terms and Phrases, the phrase of the day is:

WONK (noun) ... wahnk ... Crusty brown gunk localized at the inside corners of the eyes. This phenomenon typically results after one has spent a particularly hard night of sleeping, although wonk can occur after a long nap, too. When wet, wonk is sometimes referred to as "eye boogers." In most instances, wonk is highly visible and spoils the look of otherwise attractive cats.

Adjective(s): wonky; wonkish; wonkiness

see also: wonky peepers ... The condition of having wonk in the inside corners of the eyes prior to 'wonk removal.'

Sentence examples:
1. Pumpkin refused to hold still for wonk removal until Mom put him in a headlock.
2. Sparky Fuzzypants' eyes were full of nasty, brownish wonk after a particularly restful nap.
