Looked that up

More words from

Hounded, Book 1 of The Iron Druid Chronicles by Kevin Hearne.

flibbertigibbet

flibbertigibbet? Not from the parchment bag in a frozen turkey.

flibbertigibbet: noun: 1. a chattering or flighty, light-headed person. 2. Archaic. a gossip.

People sometimes mistaken me for a flibbertigibbet.

dilatory

dilatory: Not something that happens during childbirth.

dilatory: adjective: 1. tending to delay or procrastinate; slow; tardy. 2. intended to cause delay, gain time, or defer decision: a dilatory strategy.

He avoided eye contact, rearranged paperwork, and deployed other dilatory tactics.

fomorian

Fomorians: I’m at a total loss… 

Formorian: noun, Irish Legend. One of a race of pirates or sea demons who raided and pillaged Ireland but were finally defeated: sometimes associated with the hostile powers of nature.

Hurricane Sandy ripped across the coast like a band of Fomorians of old.
