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.
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.**
