Yale is celebrating Noah Webster’s birthday – not just any one, his 250th birthday. It’s a big one, so the celebration lasts for two days. Of course, Yale is 57 years older than that, so it’s the least we can do.
Noah was the Dictionary Guy so one part of the celebration was an “Eat Your Words” cupcake giveway, with each cupcake decorated with yummy icing and a little triangle of chocolate with a word written on it. My word was “Nutrient” and my colleague got “Caloric” – which seemed kind of ironic to be stuck into cupcakes. It was a fun event, though, and promoted the man in a different way.
