Lithodomous

li·​thod·​o·​mous

Adjective

Burrowing in rock

Come on, seriously, other than a crossword puzzle no one is going to use this one, are they?

I was just happy to find two in a row that did not come from Latin.  Nope, we cobbled this one out of the Greek word  lithodomos, meaning mason and adding our own “ous” on the end of it.

Betsey is a recovering agent of Satan (.i.e. a legal professional) now working towards a lifetime goal of becoming a perfectly sane cat lady, medieval clothing designer, and occasional playwright. Maybe even finish my doctorate.....nyah, probably not, who needs another expert in Elizabethan Law and its effect on the growth of the middle class.
