Defenestrate is one of my favorite words. There is just something about it that sounds…cool. I first became acquainted with it when I was in my ninth grade English class. Since that time I have had moments in which I proudly engaged in acts of defenestration.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with it here is an easy definition.
tr.v., -tratÂ·ed, -tratÂ·ing, -trates.
To throw out of a window.
In case you are wondering what made me think of sharing this with you I attribute it to Meryl’s post here.
