Like people, (and the world around us) languages evolve over time, which means our vocabulary is constantly getting modified. Unfortunately, this also means that some words will be long forgotten. There are some words that used to serve a purpose that ended up disappearing into oblivion. Thankfully, we managed to bring back a few forgotten English Words that were so cool, we’re seriously hoping these become trendy again!
This word describes pretty much one of the things we all pretend to do while at work. It’s too bad that the word remained behind in the 18th century, because let’s face it, we’d all be using it right now!

What some of us call this act “dog staring,” or “vulturing,” but it was once called Groke by the Scottish people many, many years ago. Oh, but we’re sure it was just as annoying way back as it is today. But whatever you do, don’t give in and share your food!
