Slang Gang Word of the Day


August 7: Dohment

One of those slap your forehead moments when you realise that you've just done something incredibly stupid.

The moment when something "dawns on you" and the penny drops.

A dohment is when you realise that you've put the baby outside and tucked the cat up in the cot for the night.

or

A dohment is when you wonder why the lawn isn't looking any better then notice that you haven't engaged the lawnmower blade.


**Absolutley appropriate for today. Considering that my entire life is a compilation of dohments.**
