Default RE: [Dixonary] ROUND 3131 - INCREPATION voting

All – Below you will see 13 definitions, 12 creative ones and the ‘real’ dictionary one. After all, the made up ones are, in their way, as real as the dictionary one. I found many of them quite plausible. Since we’re approaching New Year’s Eve, I’ve set a relatively expansive deadline. Please send your votes to the group by 11 AM Friday, January 1, 2021 US Eastern Standard Time or as it appears in your time zone below.

Best of luck, and Happy New Year. It’ll be a relief to say goodbye to 2020.
