Word O’ the Day

Today’s word is Bittock – slang for an unknown unit of measurement.

Used in a sentence, “from here to there is about 3 miles and a bittock.”

What a useful word! Why would this be leaving the dictionary?!
Here are three random examples of how this could be used:
“Its really just a bittock to the store from here!”
“I’m not walking there- its like a hundred miles AND a bittock!”
“Google maps said we should turn left in a bittock.”

I’m worndering if this word is the father of “bit.” As in “I’ll be with you in just a bit!” Seems plausible!

  1. Huh. I can see how that would be useful. Perhaps we should embark on a campaign to re-popularize it!
