Hey Sparkle Writers, we hope you are loving this segment as much as we are. The word for today is ‘groggy’
It is pronounced as [GROG-ee]. It is an adjective that means dazed; weak or unsteady as from lack of sleep, tiredness, sickness, intoxication, etc.
The word has a weird origin or etymology. It came from the nickname of Admiral Edward Vernon (1684-1757), who ordered diluted rum to be served to his sailors (and thus helped coin the term grog). The admiral earned the nickname from his habit of wearing a grogram cloak. Grogram is a coarse fabric of silk, wool, mohair, or a blend of them.
