Word Wednesday: Abacinate

Ugh, I've been so busy it's unreal! I'm doing an internship at the town library this summer, you see, and I'm running creative writing workshops (because obviously I know what I'm talking about? Hah!) Uh, anyway, here's your word for the week!

Abacinate is another one of those oddly specific words. It means "to blind by putting red-hot copper basin near the eyes." So I suppose if someone says they were abacinated, now you know what they mean. Doesn't sound that pleasant, though!
