New Word: Bindlestiff

bindlestiff |ˈbindlˌstif|
noun
a tramp or a hobo, esp. one carrying a bundle containing a bedroll and other gear.

I like learning new words.  I don’t know why but I just do.  The only problem with this is that upon learning the new word I tend to use the word over and over (usually out of context – an example would be, “Wow! That supper was bindlestiff!”) essentially running the new word into the ground.

Does anyone else find themselves doing this?
