Last week, my alarm started buzzing and I hit the snooze button. I saw it as if I was seeing it for the first time–
This has got to be one of the strangest words I’ve ever seen. According to Merriam Webster, snooze is “a nap” or “to doze”. As I search for the origin of this word, I cannot find it.
Apparently, the first known use of the word “snooze” was in 1793. Some think it’s merely a word that’s supposed to mimic the sound of a snore. I don’t know how I feel about that.
What do you think? This is one wacky word.
In fact, it’s making me want to take a catnap, drowse, take forty winks, kip, nap . . . You get the idea.
