A to Z: You Snooze, You Lose

Rise and shine! Get outta bed, you lazy lunks--there's work to be done here! Language lessons to be learned!

If you missed my first post about the Blogging from A to Z Challenge and can't be bother to navigate back to it manually, I'll make it easier for you: A-Z, and all that jA-Zz

And now it's time to roll up your sleeves to take on a new 1920s slang term. This one appears in my contemporary/historical romance novel Seven for a Secret (due out in August), so stop dawdling,  you dandy, and get wise to the jive:

~*~  DEWDROPPER  ~*~
Meaning: An unemployed young man who lies around all day

"At least have the decency to remove your hat,
you idle dewdropper."
