Superior Person's Word of the Week!

Absquatulate v. To leave in a hurry, suddenly, and/or in secret. “No problem, Mr. Burbage; just make the check out to cash – I’m doing the accounts tonight and you can rely on me to absquatulate first thing in the morning.”

The waitress tried to stop her customers from absquatulating from the table without paying.
Each Tuesday, we’ll offer up a Superior Word for the edification of our Superior Readers, via the volumes of the inimitable Peter Bowler. You can purchase all or any of the four Superior Person’s Books of Words from the Godine website. Absquatulate appears in the Second.
