Word of the Day: Sop

Since receiving a Word A Day Calendar, I've decided to write a short something including my new word each day.



noun \ˈsäp\

  1. 1 chiefly dialect :  a piece of food dipped or steeped in a liquid

  2. 2 :  a conciliatory or propitiatory bribe, gift, or gesture

My boss gave me the day off as a sop for working so many hours last week.
