Morning Exercise 7-10-14: Word “Disgorge”

Start with the word of the day from the New York Times.


disgorge •\(ˌ)dis-ˈgȯrj\• verb: 1. cause or allow (a solid substance) to flow or run out or over; 2. eject the contents of the stomach through the mouth


Now free-associate.



If you gorge, you gotta disgorge, I guess.

First you laugh, then you cry (as my wife’s granddad used to say).

And, of course, what goes up must come down.

Every action has an equal and opposite reaction.

That’s Sir Isaac Newton, if you didn’t know.

Famous inventor of the Fig Newton.

On which I used to gorge. (I liked to freeze them first.)

Though come to think of it, Newton’s law did not hold in that case.

Thank goodness.
