A.Word.A.Daywith Anu Garg
verb intr.: To make a whispering or rustling sound.
From Latin susurrare (to whisper or hum), of imitative origin. Earliest documented use: 1623.
“If it’s possible to susurrate visually then that’s what ‘Summer Nights at the Dollar Tree’ does. Lazy and slow and gentle, it feels just right.”

A THOUGHT FOR TODAY:An old miser kept a tame jackdaw, that used to steal pieces of money, and hide them in a hole, which a cat observing, asked, "Why he would hoard up those round shining things that he could make no use of?" "Why," said the jackdaw, "my master has a whole chestful, and makes no more use of them than I do." -Jonathan Swift, satirist (30 Nov 1667-1745)
