to coddle

June 22, 2011 § Leave a comment

1. treat in an indulgent or overprotective way: I was coddled and cosseted.

2. cook (an egg) in water below the boiling point.

ORIGIN late 16th cent. (in the sense [boil (fruit) gently] ): origin uncertain; sense 1 is probably dialect variant of obsolete caudle [administer invalids’ gruel,] …

No walk today. I sat in a chair for 2 hours and experienced a root canal.
