The word is Spoondrift


This is my new favorite word

You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty. - Mahatma Gandhi

Pronounced: [spoon-drift]

I found this interesting bit of information: "Spoondrift comes from the old Scots word ‘spoon’ which meant ‘to run before the wind’ while drift may come from the Old Norse ‘drift’, like snowdrift."
