Have you ever had a hankering for something?  According the Merriam Webster dot com a hankering is a strong or persistent desire. To yearn for something. The word’s origin is a little fuzzy, but one good guess traces it to the Middle Dutch hangen, “to hang,” from the idea of “hanging around” or “lingering.” If you’re in the South you’ll most likely drop the letter “g” at the end and just have a hankerin’.  Means the same thing, just with a southern flair.  Right now I have a hankerin’ for a nice, hot cup of coffee.

Got a fun word for you today; Pandiculation.  This may have happened to you this morning.  It  is what happens when you wake up in the morning and stretch. As you stretch, your muscles might go rigid for a short time, which can sometimes be uncomfortable. It also describes that wonderful, or terrible, combination of being extremely sleepy, stretching and yawning at the same time. Now, when this happens to you, you’ll know what to call it! Pandiculation. I’ll be right there dear, I’m having a pandiculation.  Listen to the podcast here; https://theriver953.com/lonnies-fun-fact/
