Ladies and gents, today’s two words of the day are:

  • abscond” (verb) – To leave quickly and hide to avoid punishment.

Example: Since the boys could not pay for their meals, they decided to abscond before the waitress returned with their bill.

  • expunge” (verb) – To obliterate or remove (something unwanted or unpleasant) completely.

Example: A chip was put inside the spy’s brain to expunge his memory so he would never recall any of his missions.
