Your word of the day. Pumplet.

The flyers that cascade out of my morning paper are often a source of wondrous vocabulary.

The flyers, usually printed on thin, cheap paper are evidence of ordinary people trying to make a living, or expand their business, and apparently the way to do that is to advertise in English.

Like this flyer from a local optician, offering a free gift if I took in their “pumplet”.

I absolutely love this word, which is a phonetic little gem, and I fully intend to use it as often as I can 🙂
