This is the first post in a new section called, “Words I like to say”. The first word I enter into this category is slather. There is a smoothness to it, and don’t rush it, start slow, then fall into the last syllable… Slather.
Definition per Dictionary.com:
1. to spread or apply thickly: to slather butter on toast.
2. to spread something thickly on (usually followed by with ): to slather toast with butter.
3. to spend or use lavishly.
There is a www.slather.com, but it is not what you think. It is owned by a couple of guys in Alaska, thus looks like some kind of homage to an old Jeep they call Mr. Nate.
I think of barbecue sauce or melted chocolate attached to this word, ” The wings are slathered in a barbecue-chocolate sauce.”
Are there any bad connotations out there? I was slathered in army ants? No way.
I was slathered in high priced hookers, hell yeah! Now that’s a party! If I become a famous rapper, I might have to make my rap name out of this, like MC SLATH-HER or something…
