Didbrook

Didbrook: A thump or blow to the belly which results in the recipient expelling all available oxygen from the body. A term used in rugby. Recipient likely not to get back on their feet for some time, and will wheeze for days, and be dazed for weeks.

Damery: The sort of things that women keep very deep in their handbags for unforeseen circumstances that men have no knowledge of. Much better that way.
