Mind equals blown! I first heard this word used in a Harry Potter book. Something about Hagrid moving Christmas trees and removing his "balaclava." I just assumed it was a scarf with a fancy name. Fast forward til yesterday. I kept hearing people, in this book I was listening to, making references to Mother F-ing balaclavas. Like seriously call it a GD scarf already!!!! It sounds like a Greek dessert, or flaky crusted pastry. The answer is D, none of the above. It's a face mask. Secretly, I feel that I have two options, to feel like an imbecilic for being such an ignoramus, or if I should go on strike against the word and have it eradicated from the language. Either way, I'm not planning on ever wearing one.
