Superior Person's Tuesday!

NIDIFICATE, v. To build a nest. You settle down in the quietness of the theater to enjoy the opening dream sequence of Wild Strawberries. From the seat in front of you comes an insistent crackling and rustling of candy wrappings. "Usher!" you call out in a loud voice, "I think the woman in front of me is nidificating in her seat!"

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. Nidificate appears in the first.
