Noun, pl.: Meaning the rumbling noises created by the stomach, or, if you’d like, I could use it in a sentence: I was embarrassed by my borborygmi as I waited for your arrival in a crowded café, where you suggested we split a sandwich at noon and discuss the possibility of me brushing my teeth in front of your sink, watering your plants when you forgot to, eating salty popcorn in front of your TV with you. I gave you another ten minutes just for good measure, just in case you were running late, but at half past noon I began my walk home on much more than an empty stomach. But I won’t bother you with any more tidings from the dictionary. I just thought I’d write to let you know that my definition of you was subject to change and it has, and now I realize that maybe I wasn’t ready to share my toothpaste after all.
