Hunker down!!!

I’ve always wanted to hunker down. I’ve never had the opportunity to do it that I know of. What if I did have the opportunity but didn’t recognize it and may not ever have the opportunity again. I’ve been robbed of the experience of hunkering.

I’m not sure what hunkering really is. I hear it mostly when they’re talking to people who are going to stay in their house when there’s a disaster like a hurricane headed their way. But all that means is that they’re going to stay in their house.

I stay in my house all day, nearly everyday, so does this mean that I have hunkered and didn’t realize it?  I suppose if my mother-in-law was coming over I could keep her at bay while I hunker down and wait for her to give up and leave. I have enough food and water to at least survive long enough for that.

According to Merriam-Webster, Definition of hunker down. chiefly US. 1 : to lower the body to the ground by bending the legs (The hikers hunkered down under a cliff until the storm passed). 2 : to stay in a place for a period of time (The leaders hunkered down at a country estate for difficult peace negotiations.) I guess the mother-in-law example is spot on.

  1. Taking the dictionary definition and imaging a town’s population suddenly stopping in the street etc and lowering their bodies to the ground by bending the legs gives me a pretty amazing image.

    I don’t think we officially ‘hunker’ down in the UK, though hunkering suits me.
