A to Z Lies: Quadrille

Quadrille
Noun.  A drill that for some reason has four bits permanently attached.

As in: I was spending some quality time in the workshop, but everything went wrong the minute I tried using that ridiculously inconvenient quadrille (I mean, who designs these things anyway, the French; well, that would certainly explain the otherwise pointless "e" at the end, right?).

(Also, under no circumstances should you dance while holding a quadrille.  Bad things happen, folks.)

  1. I love this day. I get to learn a lot of words I never heard before AND potential winners at Scrabble!

    Thanks!

    1. And just to be clear: I'm using real words, but providing patently fake definitions.
