The new edition of the Oxford Concise Dictionary is dropping the word "growlery", meaning "the private den of a man". Whoa! Let's think this over over before taking such rash action. I mean, would you rather retire to your growlery with a cigar and cognac, or go the your man cave and drink a couple cans of Bud Lite? While I have a nice wood paneled den, I'm in the process of refurbishing an out building into a personal bike shop and studio. This is required for both bicycle storage and wrenching, and cigar smoking, as my mate has drawn a pretty firm line in the sand on smoking in the house. Boy, I'd sure rather call it a "growlery" than a "shed", but I suppose I can't do it now that growlery isn't a word anymore.
