of the Week
word or phrase to add to your army.
Shenanigans (Shi-nan-i-gens) refers to mischief. They can be funny pranks, or even rotten, cruel tricks, but generally the word is used to describe the silly, ridiculous stunts.
Putting shaving cream on your sisters hand while she's asleep and then tickling her nose would definitely be a shenanigan that might land you in a lot of trouble.
My mother often asks me, "Becky Lyn, what kind of shenanigans are you up to now?" Somehow, she always knows.
April Fools' Day is kind of a global holiday celebrating shenanigans.
Don't try this at home! This is a shenanigan too far!
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."
