I always thought ‘spunk’ referred to being courageous and having the backbone to stand up for what you believed in even if it went against conventional norms.  I thought it referred to someone who had the guts to stand their ground. I thought it was a good trait to have.

However, I have recently learned that spunk can refer to other things…

How did I not know this after 29 years…

Oh dear…

I shall go back to living beneath my rock!  I’m nearly as shattered as when I discovered the ulterior meaning to ‘pussy’ -  It does not always refer to our feline companions 8-O
