B is For Baas
Day 2 of the A To Z Challenge has arrived and so on to the next letter.
So the first word that I came to in my dictionary that I didn't know and began with B was:
baas n S African a boss [Afrikaans]
Now after I had found my word my eyes drifted down the page and landed on another word I didn't know - babaco - which according to my dictionary is a greenish yellow egg shaped fruit. Curiosity got the better of me so I decided to look for a picture of a babaco. If you click that link you can look at a photo or you can do an internet image search for babaco.
Now I don't know about you but I've never seen an egg shaped like that before. Now I might be wrong - there may be an animal out there that lays eggs like that but I don't know of one.
I'm beginning to wonder if I can completely trust my dictionary...
But anyway today you got two words for the price of one.
