The Part That Is Not There [Apr. 17th, 2008|01:12 am]
Say It To Me


in·ter·stice [ĭn-tûr'stĭs]
Function : n.
Etymology : [L. interstitium a pause, interval; inter between + sistere to set]

: That which intervenes between one thing and another; especially, a space between things closely set, or between the parts which compose a body; a narrow chink; a crack; a crevice; a hole; an interval; as, the interstices of a wall.

- Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary

The air hisses between the interstices of my teeth as I whisper this word over to myself, thinking of all the best ways one could have narrow gaps between objects. (And then a friend points out that 'the nooks and crannies' of English muffins are 'buttery interstices.' It doesn't get much better than that.)
