Starbucks: antediluvian

Dictionary.com/antediluvian: "antediluvian \an-tih-duh-LOO-vee-uhn\, adjective:
1. Of or relating to the period before the Biblical flood.
2. Antiquated; from or belonging to a much earlier time.
2. A very old (or old-fashioned) person."

New Starbucks Akeelah and the Bee word today since it was so popular yesterday. Today's word isn't so rare. At least it wasn't if you grew up in my house. My mother used it with a frequency that you wouldn't believe, much like my lovely middle child often over-uses the word gazillion.
