Manunder: Like an SAT Word, But Not
Tram, a Glamour.com blogger, introduced a new, really useful word to me: "manover," unofficially defined as the process by which a sweet, shaven boy grows his beard and hair out to look "more manly" or "tough." Toned, muscle definition may be involved in this process as well.
I'm trying to find ways to integrate "manover" into my normal coffee break parlance. But I guess the flipside would be a "manunder," or a debristling. Just got my boy-f to do that! Sometimes hair growth is not a sign of spiritual growth.
(Note: That's a porcupine.)
