Wordnik word of the day: hussy

by Grant Barrett on September 15, 2009

Today’s word of the day is hussy. No, not the hussy meaning “a brazen or immoral woman,” but the hussy meaning “a case for scissors, needles, thread, etc.” To confuse matters further, it’s also known as a housewife or hussif. Not to be confused with a hussar.
