I think one obvious symptom of my ADHD, OCD, or some other abbreviated overdiagnosed “issue” is that for as long as I can remember I get stuck on words. My mind stumbled through the day and I keep tripping over the same word. Like a scrape at the roof of your mouth that gets all of your tongue’s affection until somehow you miraculously forget about it and it heals.

Today’s word: Torrefied.

Torrefied is a word I come across reading about beer a lot. Mostly it’s an old way of describing something that has been dried and roasted after puffing. There isn’t a whole lot of information on the word: nothing on the OED, nothing on webster’s, just a entry in wikipida that directs to Puffed Grain.
