Word of the Day: KICKIE-WICKIE

apparently a humorous formation of kicksey-winsey (a whim or erratic fancy)

“…Parolles. I that would be knowne: too’th warrs my boy, too’th warres: He weares his honor in a boxe vnseene, That hugges his kickie wickie heare at home, Spending his manlie marrow in her armes Which should sustaine the bound and high curuet Of Marses fierie steed: to other Regions, France is a stable, wee that dwell in’t Iades, Therefore too’th warre…”

From: All’s Well that Ends Well
By William Shakespeare, a1616
