Superior Person's Tuesday!

absquatulate, v., To leave in a hurry, suddenly, and/or in secret. Example: "No problem, Mr. Burbage; just make the check out in cash--I'm doing the accounts tonight and you can rely on me to absquatulate first thing in the morning."
Unfortunately, this term has not been proven to increase your squatting abilities nor can it flatten your abs.
If you are a committed absquatulator, however, our guess is that you are consequently an adept sprinter.

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.
