The Word of Your Day Thread

This is a thread that people can post interesting words that they have heard during their day (or thought of during the day). They don't have to be clever words or long words but just ones that make you smile. The end goal is that I will compile a dictionary of called 'Words that Make People Smile' with accurate definitions. Therefor people will not only put it down with a smile on their face but they would have learnt something to.

The first word is 'Marimba'. Try and say that without feeling good.

Definition:
a musical instrument, originating in Africa but popularized and modified in Central America, consisting of a set of graduated wooden bars, often with resonators beneath to reinforce the sound, struck with mallets.

For a bonus point provide an example of a sentence you were able to use that incorporated your word.

Let the education begin!!
