Quaff

QUAFF, v. Emptying the "sparkling wine" down your throat. When it's only whiskey it's called swallowing.

2008 Update: To drink regally, as one does with wine, not as you do. To consume in the third person.

Congratulations to both today. Heady stuff (though perhaps not so heady as "coif").

TLP said...

LOL. You are first weirsdo only because Doug distracted me. That dog.

Quaff is such a silly-sounding word. I guzzle.

QUAFF, v. Chugging with a lisp. Except as a plebe in the fraternity, where a lisp would get you tasked to another handle.

QUAFF v.
As every school kid knows, a quaff is the cross between a cough and a laugh. This only happens at lunch and the result is usually milk squirting out one's nose. Good stuff as long as it is not happening to you.

I like a quaff now and then. If by quaff you mean tossing back a two-four.

Quaff, to possess without tasting first.

LOL Quilly! All the things come out of our noses when we are teenagers...

Doug said...

Weirsdo, coif has an advantage, though I don't know what.

TLP, I snort.

You're walking the line, Amoeba.

Ah, Quilly, but to the milk itself it means freedom!

Jenn, if I knew what a two-four was I betcha I'd mean that.

Prosperity, too, Bear. Yes, and others not so much.

Ariel, you speak like a wine connoisseur, whatever that is.

Now I can quaff a few and not worry about beer on my breath at work.

Thanks for this word, it's so hard to explain to people what drinking with class really is. ;)
