Found a cool word today in my court transcript work:
Nidus - a nest in which spiders or insects deposit their eggs.
- a central point or locus of an infection in an organism; "the focus of infection."
Synonyms - Focus
See Also -focal infection, hornet's nest, nest, point, wasp's nest.
Unfortunately, I have no place to use it today, but I'm sure eventually it will come in handy. I still remember the day I learned hubris. I was so pleased.
