Veronica walked into the room carrying a stack of dresses. “What do you think? Anything worth bedizening?”

Betty stared at her, then marched over to the bookcase and pulled down the latest edition of Merriam-Webster’s Unabridged English Dictionary. “Bedizening? Omigod. Who says bedizening? I can’t… I can’t even. Bedizening. Bed. I. Zen. Ing. Whatever. What… ever.”

“It’s the word of the day,” Veronica sniffed and dropped the dresses on the sofa. “It means to dress or adorn gaudily.”

Betty hurled the dictionary at her head.
