Superior Person's Tuesday!

LAABA, n. A storage platform high enough to be beyond the reach of animals. (An Alaskan word.) Also, the top shelf of the pantry, where kids can't get at the animal-shaped gingersnaps and the packets of colored cake sprinkles.

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. Laaba appears in the second.
