Arcane Vocabulary: Masticate

When’s the last time you masticated in a glass of water?

In a word, to chew.  The source of many a trod-upon nerd’s joke in high school.  Next time someone steals your lunch money, try this: “Hey, I saw you masticating in the cafeteria.  How’d it feel?”

If editors ran the world, a superior vocabulary would win out over brute force every time.
