Word of the Day: PETTLES

of unknown origin

“…Thro’ glaury holes, an’ dybs, nae mair
Ye’ll ward my pettles frae the lair,
Nor skinkle jet-black, here an’ there,
Wi’ white-thread hose;
Whan I gang to a kintry Fair,
To mak’ a sprose

From: Miscellaneous Poems, Songs, &c.,
Partly in the Scottish Dialect
By Ebenezer Picken, 1788
