DaisyMae's "Word of the Day": GACK

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

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

GACK 1. (verb) ... gak ... The act of regurgitating food and/or hair by pressing one's chest flat to the ground, extending one's tongue, bulging one's eyes, and violently retching with the intention of achieving a new "barf for volume and distance" record. The most effective "gacking" is done under cover of darkness so one's human(s) might step in said gack (see definition two) with bare feet (best when the gack has reached a chilly and slimy consistency).
Additional verb forms: gacked, gacking, gacks
2. (noun) ... gak ... The wet pile of regurgitated food and/or hair produced through "gacking."

synonym(s): vomit; puke; spew; yesterday's mews; barf; throw-up; decorating the carpet; blowing chunks; revisiting the stinky goodness; belching in technicolor

Sentence example:
1. Mom hopped on one foot while scraping cold, wet gack off of her other foot.
2. Fudgie swallowed so much hair while grooming that he had to gack it out.

Oh very excellent word. The other day Harlie gakked... on the bed... and off the edge... into a bag of brand new clothes that hadn't been put away yet. It was awesome. Mom got up earlier than she planned that morning.

The Tower Hill Mob said...

Oh, yes. We are all too familiar with that. However, we thought it was a northern expression...
very descriptive, we think.
Cuddles to all those kitties!

The last time I did that, I turned my kitty bed upside-down over it so it wouldn't get stepped on. Was that wrong?

DaisyMae Maus said...

Midnight ... Definitely wrong although I'm sure that the reaction to what was under the over-turned kitty bed was probably priceless. Next time, leave the gack uncovered and watch for the real fireworks!
