Fandango’s One Word Challenge: Bugaboo
“Welcome to Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (aka, FOWC). It’s designed to fill the void after WordPress bailed on its daily one-word prompt. Today’s word is “Bugaboo.”” (https://fivedotoh.com/2019/10/11/fowc-with-fandango-bugaboo/)
What a weird word! It means so many things: 1 : an imaginary object of fear. 2 : bugbear sense 2 also : something that causes fear or distress out of proportion to its importance. Slang: Someone who is clingy and blows up your cellphone.
How about this bugaboo taking over the world?
