The first time I came across that word was in a David Eddings novel. I think it was The Hidden City.
I've heard of it before, and done it, too.
But only when the window was open.
I'm SO impressed!
I knew my readers were brilliant!
Why didn't you tell me you knew such a cool word?
I have to tell you, I sent the word out to many, many people. (Like a kid who discovered a new candy.)
And one (church) lady emailed me back to say that she did a google search and came up with a bunch of "bad and nasty sites" and she wondered where I found it. I found DEFENESTRATION on a list of publisher's sites--there's an ezine that does nothing but humor. I didn't know what the word meant--I know, it's crazy that I admit it when I'm clueless--so I googled: definition defenestration. What I posted was the first link--I never looked below it because I had my answer on the first shot.
It's just amazing to me that there is always a church lady involved in looking down her nose at me--no matter what I do--even the innocent things!
The poor lady would have a heart attack if she knew what Carys Weldon wrote about.
Sex. OMG. Is that a dirty word or what?
And who the hell said it was dirty in the first place? I'd shoot their ghost if I knew.
I say...get naked. Run through the trees. Let your lily white ass feel the breeze. Giggle while you do it. But watch the stickers when you do it!
(Yes, Carys thinks she's a poet. Mojocastle may publish a collection of my sex poetry for Valentine's day. I hope you'll check it out.)
