I've come to the realization that I've never used the word "peckish." What does it even mean, exactly? To me, it conjures images of baby chicks on a farm, but what sort of emotion is that supposed to represent?

So, off to the dictionary.

Turns out peckish means "somewhat hungry" or "rather irritable." At last! I have found the perfect word to describe my wife.

(She'd probably label me "puckish," after the slap.)

I cannot believe you just wrote a post about this. One day while I was in Istanbul with Karis, she announced, "Hey, we should eat soon. I'm starting to feel peckish." I told her I'd never in almost 30 years of life heard someone use that term in conversation.

Stuff is weird.

I say that whenever I feel like Gregory Peck, so this is totally mind-blowing.

As far as your wife is concerned, which definition are you talking about? Both?

Mostly "rather irritable," but the "hungry" thing is a recurring theme.
