A word that can have a variety of meanings, depending on the context. None of us are teenagers, so we will skip that one since none of this relates to automobiles in any way shape, matter, or form.
In this particular case – it can easily be demonstrated by
where the noun refers to all those separate threads of floss hanging down. Each one of them is “parked” in the location where it will next be used. Those 23 threads are not all different colors, but I am sure that there are duplicates. This particular piece of cross stitch is about 65 stitches wide if I remember correctly and there is a limit to how far even I will carry a thread (which is why I never, ever show the backs of my stitching. It really doesn’t matter since the backs always get sealed over anyway. No interest in playing the game of ‘neatest reverse side” since it isn’t going to show on a completed piece.
Anyway, I didn’t accomplish much today. Stitched a bit, opened some mail and put off getting mailing supplies till Sunday (or perhaps on my return from work on Saturday.)
