A Word A Day

A friend of mine taught me a new word.

The word is beek. It's a verb with two meanings: (1) to bask or warm in the sunshine or before a fireplace, stove, or bonfire; and (2) to season (wood) by exposure to heat.

Beek the bamboo

"The beeking step is quite important in ensuring the strength and resilience of the bamboo."

It almost might sound like the word "bake"--or people might think that's what you're saying.
