Saturday Word: Zarf

Howdy friends, I'm still here! I'm barrelling towards the end of the semester and haven't had a few minutes to sit down and queue up entries.

Zarf - noun.

Today's word comes from the Facebook game Word Blitz, which had me asking "Zarf??? That doesn't sound cromulent!"

It turns out that a zarf (plural: zarfs) is an intricate, usually metal holder for cups without a handle. I remember having plastic zarfs as a kid when we went camping. They were plastic holders that Solo cups could be snapped into. Fancy! :-) See you Wednesday!
