Today’s Word of the Day was submitted to us by Luke of Westminster, Maryland.
Luke chose milquetoast because the word and origin are unique. He states that the word “sounds like two breakfast-related words, but is really a useful adjective to describe more people than one would realize.”
Milquetoast means “a very timid, unassertive person, especially one who is easily intimidated.”
