word of the day

Today, the Merriam Webster word of the day is “goober.” It means peanut. I think this is funny, because during college, Cinderella was living up here one summer and she and her roommate had a party. Afterwards, Cinderella told me that one of her roommate’s college friends apparently took a shine to me, and as I was trying to figure out what to make of that (it was a while ago, remember — I was a little slow), she remarked, “well, he is kind of a goober.” I wasn’t quite sure what that meant, but judging by the way she said it, it wasn’t good.
