- Trash: discarded matter; refuse
- Tiara: An ornamental band worn in a woman’s hair
How I encountered this word:
Taking Sadie for her morning walk today, we came across a pink, bow hair clip abandoned on the sidewalk. I stopped, picked it up and clipped it to the fur on top of her neck as we continued our walk.
I couldn’t help but giggle as Sadie, completely unaware, donned the clip. We passed a popular neighborhood coffee shop and a guy who was sitting at a table outside (and looking as though he may have been a tad drunk from the night before) beckoned Sadie to come over for a little puppy lovin’.
As he began to scratch her neck I said, laughing, “You’ll have to excuse the bow in her fur.”
Guy asked, “What’s that about?”
I responded, “We were walking and I found it on the ground. I picked it up and stuck it on her.”
Guy, turning back to Sadie and scratching the sweet spot behind her ears, said, “Awww, mommy made you wear a trash tiara.”
