lake: to allay (thirst) by satisfying
As in: "We slake our thirst, let the warm water pour over our itching bodies." I read this line in Catching Fire, the second book in the Hunger Games trilogy, last night, and was struck by the word. I'd never heard it before.
The hubs and I are going on a 5-year-anniversary-date this Saturday evening. First stop, the early showing of Catching Fire, the movie, then on to Cellar on Greene for drinks and dinner. I was a bit slow to the Hunger Games party, but I am hooked now and can't wait to see this!
