chained_bear commented on the word tumble-turd
"The door flew open, and Mrs. Bug popped out, round and flustered as a tumble-turd. Jamie smiled at sight of her....'All's well, all's well, and how's yourself, sir?' Mrs. Bug was reassuring him before his boots struck ground."—Diana Gabaldon, The Fiery Cross (NY: Bantam Dell, 2001), 257–258
