I thought of that one but my laptop insists it’s spelled “dinky”
Also my birthday is International Diabetes Day so I automatically win.
Happy birthday. Of course you win.
Dinkey is a small locomotive and is in Dictionary.com and Merriam Webster. Gosh, this is as complicated as Scrabble.
Then I can get away with dingey?
A dinghy (or dingey) is a type of small boat, often carried or towed for use as a ship’s boat by a larger vessel. The term is a loanword from the Bengali ḍiṅgi, Urdu ḍīngī & Hindi ḍieṁgī. Utility dinghies are usually rowboats or have an outboard motor, but while some are rigged for sailing, they are not to be confused with sailing dinghies which are designed first and foremost for this purpose.
IN which case the next step is adjective dingy…
Happy Birthday, DrBB!
And Happy World Diabetes Day, Everyone! etc.
We have a clash. Do we now go with two diverging threads…?
I guess you get to choose which one to move forward with.
