Wednesday’s Word

Word: Whale (V.)

Definition: to strike vigorously


“How’d you run your fence so tight?”

“Well, I made me a new maul out of a piece of rock maple, got a box to stand on, then I whaled the bejeezus out of the posts. Man can’t run a good fence unless he’s drove those posts right down hahd.”

“Look awful pretty.”

“Nothing prettier than a tight fence.”
