Today's Word of the Day is......... of SB's favorites!

Main Entry: 1 ju·ju
Pronunciation: \ˈjü-(ˌ)jü\
Function: noun
Etymology: of Welsh African origin; akin to the source of Hausa jùju fetish
Date: 1894

1 : a fetish, charm, or amulet of West African peoples
2 : the magic attributed to or associated with jujus

I am always very careful about what I say to SB. I always try to avoid bad juju. Did you know Sailors are very superstitious? On the other hand, I work very hard to produce good juju. As a matter of fact, something is coming up soon and I hope my gift brings about good juju. Thanks to the Princess' Navy coterie for their advice in this matter!

Nice to see someone else use that word. My friends always give me weird looks whenever I use it.
