Tuesday Word: Vug (or Vugh)

Vug [vuhg]:
origin: [1810] Cornish; vooga= cave.

noun (adjective, vuggy or vughy) I swear!

Shut up, pretend it's Tuesday.

No, that's not what the word means, but you could argue this entry fills the vug of Tuesday. A vug (also spelled vugh or vugg = blame miners from Cornwall) is a small to medium-sized hollow inside a rock, geode, cave, or vein -- usually lined with sparkly mineral crystals. Technically, it's a hole, but a very pretty one.

The hole in this geode is a vug.
