Day #308: New words

I am grateful for learning new words. Today I learned “bae.” According to an etymological dictionary, it is Danish for poop. The interesting part is that it is now used to mean sweetheart or baby (affectionate term for girlfriend or boyfriend). I haven’t found anything that traces that path. New words are treasures! (I am not going to post a photo to go with this subject so you’re getting a photo of autumn leaves instead.) (Now, should I call Steve my bae? Hmmm.)
