Thesaurus Thursday: "Defenestration."

Today's word is "defenestration," or the act of throwing someone or something out of a window. Although I rather like Urban Dictionary's first definition.

Any alarm clock that runs fast is subject to defenestration early in the morning; I once found a bird building a nest around one where it had landed on a first-story windowsill.  

I would defenestrate all alarm clocks from the top story if I could.


  1. So, my work mate defenestrated himself while drunk because he thought he saw a ghost. True story.

    1. Ouch... I'd have taken ghosts over heights any day! Even a height of a couple feet freaks me out.
