Today's Word: Poculation

Here's one you don't hear very often: poculation. Pronounced "pock-yew-LAY-shun," it means "the drinking of wine or other intoxicating brews." It's from the Latin poculari, which means to frequent the cup," from poculum, "cup."

Something tells me there's going to be a poculation explosion tomorrow, just about the time the Super Bowl comes on.
