My Answer to Yesterday’s Quick Quiz

To make sense of this post, you need to first read the previous one.

In my judgment, the word that begins with the letter m and which the speaker intended to use was “mishmash,” which means hodgepodge.  The fact that miasma is what came out of his mouth was probably because of a synaptic misfire, something I’ve discussed in two previous “quick quiz” posts – the ones dated May 30, 2012, and May 15, 2011.
