- n. steady recurrent ticking sound as made by a clock
Sorry, no etymologies found.
I left the panel early (and gratefully) to go do a radio interview with a local college radio program, which went pretty well, then went around the hotel posting the pre-printed posters for my book launch I'd brought, after first scrounging tictac (you know, that sticky gum stuff) from wherever I could find it.
“His breff smells like something died in der, hey budgie, want a tictac?”
He arrives, at length, at the door of the side room where the devotees of cards are busy at tictac.
All up the outside and the two inside stairs, his waking and sleeping were as the alternate tictac of a pendulum; but Gibbie stuck to his business like a man, and his resolution and perseverance were at length, as always, crowned with victory.
Basquash! they was take, I think as artists sometimes too much time is spent on tictac boxes, mana has a beatific smirk and a funny horselaugh.
