Word of the Day: Throes

Ok, so it’s not a very common word, but don’t confuse “throes” (which means to be in severe pain or in the midst of an agonizing struggle) with “throws” (which means to toss or propel something through the air).


I won’t be able to meet you for lunch because we are in the throes of a large proposal.

In baseball, a pitcher throws balls to the catcher (and hopes the batter doesn’t hit it first).
