of the Week
word or phrase to add to your army.
I chose to put these two words together because they are similar and fun to say.
A balaclava (bal-uh-kloh-vuh) is simply a ski mask. They come in all colors and some even have features like beards or ears crocheted onto them for fun.
Baklava (boh-kluh-voh), on the other hand, is a delicious, Middle-eastern dessert made with fillo dough, honey, and nuts. It tastes amazing, but is also nice and gooey, flakey, and messy.
It is probably not a good idea to eat baklava while wearing a balaclava! But, it might be fun to say.
I am Becky Lyn Rickman. I am a writer because I love words almost as much as I love the people in my life. I want to fill the world with magnificent words and then jump in and splash around in them. I live with Mr. Bingley and Mr. Darcy, my cats, but the only words they really love are "meat" and "gravy."
