diptych: torcid

Funny story about the title of this blog post. I thought to myself "what's a good word for twisted up branches?" and the word "torcid" jumped to mind. And then I thought about it for a second, and decided to Google it to make sure it's really a word. No. Nothing came up.

So I went to and typed it in there. Nope. Torrid came up but not torcid. But I felt sure that this word exists somewhere. So I Googled it again. And scrolled down a bit. And found the word 'torcido' in Spanish, which guessed it...TWISTED, bent or crooked! I had that little gem stored somewhere deep down in my lexicon and pulled it out through the English channel rather than the Spanish one. Total anglicization. Brains are awesome.
