My word of the day email offers us rubiginous; a word I was certain, must have something to do with Jeeps, or Jeep trails. 🤭


But, I'm wrong. 


Click here to hear the pronunciation Rubiginous

1. Of a reddish-brown color, as rust

2. Rusty or rusty-looking 


Used in a sentence:

The rubiginous appearance of the metal pipes suggested they were old and should be replaced.

We trekked across the hot, dry desert, our feet leaving prints in the rubiginous soil.

I'm going to start using it wrong. Like, that Jeep is rubiginous, or, that trail was rubiginous, in my best Jeff Spicoli impression voice.
