Superior Person's Tuesday!
Slumber Room n. The room in which a corpse (sorry, the “departed”) is laid out by a funeral director in preparation for the funeral. Why not add a little spice to family visitations by eschewing the term “guest bedroom” in favor of this somewhat more ambiguous appellation?
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. Slumber room appears in the Superior Person's Field Guide.
