Sometimes the way my brain operates surprises me. I was in a meeting yesterday, drawing on a whiteboard, and suddenly suffered word blindness. In my mounting frustration I turned to the room and asked;
“what is another word meaning ‘to sow seed’?”
Since I was discussing default properties for variables within a complex database system some people didn’t quite follow me on the link to the word I was hunting for. After a few seconds it came to me;
The perfect word when you are describing somthing that will “transmit (characteristics) from one generation to another” and also a very useful word when talking about growing and potting out seedlings!
Funny how my brain works…
