As my readers know, I spend a lot of time solving crossword puzzles. In the process, I learn a number of new words and phrases.
This one however is such a simple one but something that I had to wait for the next day to learn about that I wish to share with you.
The clue was “Intense exploitation of court shoes.”
I worked around the word to try and find but failed to complete it. I stopped at TENNI-S and gave up till the next day.
The word turned out to be TENNIES. I had never heard of or this word before and to verify went to the dictionary online to find this! Slang for tennis shoes.
Had you heard of this word in this context before?
