Word for Wednesday, it's a game writers/readers can play and win.

Guess what the word means. Put your answer in the comments section, then come back around 3:00 p.m. to see if you were write or wrong.

The WORD for this Wednesday is Eleventy.

110?

Anyone who's read The Lord of the Rings should know this. :)

Bilbo celebrated his "eleventy-first" birthday in the beginning chapters of The Fellowship of the Ring, which we learn was his 111th.

So it stands to reason that, like Kelly said, "eleventy" means 110. But that begs the question: what is 100, then? Ten-ty? Because that doesn't sound nearly as cute as ninety or eleventy does.

Hmmmm . . .

David and Kelly: You are too smart for me. I thought I might fool some of you but nope, you well-read people are hard to fool.
