Wondrous Words Wednesday

September 11, 2019

Wondrous Words Wednesday is a weekly meme where you can share new words that you’ve encountered or spotlight words you love.  Feel free to get creative!   If you want to play along, grab the button, write a post and come back and add your link to Mr. Linky!

I found one phrase in an uncorrected proof of RED AT THE BONE by Jacqueline Woodson.

1. dookie chain – “The OG blinked down at her, then lowered his voice as he recounted the way the back of Slip’s head was left dripping from the baby swings in Knickerbocker Park, his dookie chain snatched, his eyes blinked opened forever.”

A dookie chain is a thick necklace that looks like a braided chain.  You can read more about them here.
