Every once in a while my friend sends me an interesting word from a dictionary which we then proceed to destroy and redefine. Thus, I give you a wacky word from time to time and fix it up myself.
The word of the day?
Defalcation: the act or an instance of embezzling or a failure to meet a promise or an expectation.Personally, I see 'defalcation' and think of a process by which falcons are removed, or, unfortunatly, 'defacation', whose definition we won't get into. Interesting non sequitur, did you know that falcons are often employed at airports to keep smaller birds out of the engines?
