Angie has been doing a series of posts over at The Armitage Effect that include a word of the day. Well, today inspired me to follow suit, but I shall being doing so Urban Dictionary style.
Earlier this evening I was shown a picture of Sir Guy of Gisborne sporting stubble on the verge of becoming a beard.
When shown this quite fetching picture, I was told you could go with a contraction of beard + stubble and call this length of growth “bubble.” While definitely a decent option, it didn’t strike me as manly enough for Richard Armitage and certainly not for Sir Guy. So I went in search of an alternative word, via Google. Thanks to the Urban Dictionary I learned this word: scruffle.
Here are a couple of the definitions:
- The length of the hair on a man’s face that lies somewhere between stubble and a light beard (scruff).
- To rub one’s beard against another’s skin (usually the neck or face) to show affection.
“Sir Guy can scruffle me with his scruffle any day!”
