(you can read the details about this challenge and the competition running throughout the month of April) 

The word for Day 22 is—


Fashion that focuses on creating a classy off-the-peg range of those exclusive custom-fitted vests and coats designed for the rich and famous.. (haute couture knock-offs)


So that's my definition. What's yours? Post it in the comment box below. Remember you stand to win a prize.

    It sounds like some kind of complex chemical added to preserve food or something. Only a few days left darling, you can do it.

      Thanks Murees. You are a sweeti-pie! (Actually I'm only here in spirit brcause my brain has already shut down)

    Vesicouterine is a drug for hair growth. Originally developed for pigs to keep them from getting sunburn, it was only recently found to grow hair on humans.

      Hey, I need some of that stuff for my bald patch in the front…

  3. Alex J. Cavanaugh on April 25, 2013 at 8:53 pm

    Sounds like a painful procedure men would rather avoid…

    • Michelle Wallace on April 25, 2013 at 9:32 pm

      Ouch! No further details. Better to leave it to the imagination…

    It is used to make your eyes grow, so you can see far far away

      Tunnel vision in reverse, everything is big, images grow close and clear, makes you dance a jig!  (Ha! Not too bad, is it?)

    It's an adjective meaning "relating  to vivisection".

    Vesicourterine is a gel used on the bottom of your feet. It's initial use was to prevent the ghastly hardening of the heels and other areas of the feet. It was very soon learned that when a dab of vaseline is used with it, you can glide unharmed on any surface, and it has become an underground "rave" type competition scene, of different forms of games. You could join in what is very similar to roller derby, ice hockey (boy you go REALLY fast on ice), soccer, motorcross trails. It's unlimited the amount of fun you could get into if you can find one of these very kept secret locations. 

    These competitions are actually illegal, because although your feet remain unharmed, you can imagine how many people put the rest of their bodies into harm's way. Several deaths have been attributed to those competitions, since bodies were found with some residue of vesicourterine on the feet.

    I can't even pronounce that word. And you don't want to see me spell. That would be scary. 🙂

  8. Leslie Rose on April 26, 2013 at 4:17 am

    Isn't that the goo you put on cuts that makes your skin red and stings like crazy?

    Hey MIchelle – I was too buried this year to do the A to Z justice. I'll be back in the saddle next year.

    • Michelle Wallace on April 26, 2013 at 9:19 am

      I think you may be right! Thanks for the visit Leslie!

  9. Julie on April 26, 2013 at 4:37 am

    I like that fur vest! It's definitely a vested interest in couture.

  10. Lexa Cain on April 26, 2013 at 6:15 am

    Yeesh. That's a hard one. I'mgoing with:

    Vesicouterine – The name Gweneth Paltrow and Chris Martin have chosen for their new child after having used up all the other odd names.

    • Michelle Wallace on April 26, 2013 at 9:25 am

      You mean no more Apples, Bananas and Mangoes? Now they're resorting to rubs and ointments? LOL

  11. Medeia Sharif on April 26, 2013 at 6:21 am

    Sounds like an ointment. Maybe I'm thinking Vaseline. 

  12. Michelle Wallace on April 26, 2013 at 9:26 am

    Yes, a substance that "coats" the skin… it does seem to work.

  13. C. Lee McKenzie on April 26, 2013 at 2:35 pm

    That's one of those thingys with pointy heads–I think three, sometimes four–that whirls in circles or hops when angry. You only want one at a time in your life–if at all–because the Vesicouterine makes loud beeping sounds, and, when in a groups, the cacophony can drive some humans mad. 

    • Michelle Wallace on April 29, 2013 at 9:39 pm

      This pointy-headed thingy sounds like an intergalactic alien?

  14. Lara Lacombe on April 26, 2013 at 8:32 pm

    Vesicouterine is an antiquated medical procedure.  Back in the day, it was a technique used to cauterize small veins.

    • Michelle Wallace on April 29, 2013 at 9:42 pm

      Thank goodness for modern laser surgery… just fit it into the lunch time procedure… no fuss, no pain…
