Perfect Word: Akimbo

Not long ago I was spending time with my sister-in-law – I asked her about a word that had been floating around my head. Not unusual for me, to take hold of a funny word without a meaning yet, and return it to usage for the afternoon. The word was AKIMBO – together we looked it up, and now it comprises not an insignificant portion of my overall communication.  At least the important communication.

akimbo (əˈkimbō)
1. with hands on the hips and elbows turned outward.
“she stood with arms akimbo, frowning at the small boy”
