In my mailbox today was an interesting email from “A Word A Day” – today’s word is “cadogan.”
cadogan (kuh-DUG-uhn) noun
A lidless teapot, inspired by Chinese wine pots, that is filled from the bottom.
[After William Cadogan, 1st Earl of Cadogan (1675-1726), who was said to be the first Englishman to own such a pot.]
In other words, Sir Cadogan has little or nothing in his head. You can also see pictures of cadogans here. To sign up for “A Word A Day” (which is almost always my favorite email of the day), click here.
