If you have been lucky enough to stumble upon Alan Truitt's "Sick Days" blog, you would know that one of his favorite words is "merkin". He uses it in just about any context whenever the mood should strike. It is a great word considering that just saying it, brings about a smile.
So, what is a merkin, you may ask? (The photo is a pretty good hint...although, it seems to me it should be called a "furkin".) I wasn't exactly sure myself, so I thought I'd do a google on it and found this fabulous page that one would think Alan, himself, might have written. No wonder it's his "word of choice".
