Word of the Day: Floordrobe

Jezebel recently blogged about a reissued vintage book called Live Alone And Like It (1936) which is all about the joys of spinsterhood living alone. The hilarious Dodai had some updated chapter ideas, including "The Dangers of the Floordrobe." This brings us to our word of the day:

Floordrobe: Like its root word, wardrobe, which is a noun referring to a tall piece of furniture that provides storage space for clothes, a floordrobe also "provides storage space for clothes." The "space" it refers to, however, is not a piece of furniture but the more ambiguous and amorphous space of your living room or bedroom floor. Floordrobe could also refer to said clothes that constitute one's wardrobe. Ex: "I really need to update my floordrobe."

This is one of the dangers of living alone, but also one of its great freedoms — the freedom to throw your clothes willy-nilly without fear of retribution. Wheeeee!

HAHA!! radarkitty, why is your husband a piglet and not a full grown pig??? :ROTFL: Aaaahhhh, that looks like my room, except the stuff on the floor is not clothes. Strangely, though, I do have a lot of miscellaneous non-clothing items in my wardrobe...

Actually for me this is all wrong. I call this look "What it's like living with my piglet husband and NOT liking it." Or, "Life was so much cleaner before I was married!" :P
