  1. Mike's word, another that I think most everyone tried the plural first!

    1. I was just about to write the same thing--the plural is by far more common than the singular, I feel certain.

  2. In fact, though I've seen 'victualing' (as in Victualing Board in the Royal Navy), I have never seen 'victual' used. I'd even have guessed 'vittles' before 'victual' except that I was pretty sure Mike wouldn't go that far.

  3. not only do i agree with everybody here, but i actually used "victuals" as my word a year and a half ago.

  4. That was before the 'used word' fix went in, I take it?

    1. no, but the used word fix only catches exact repeats.

  5. Oh, of course, I should have known that. Well, waking up at 3:30 does dull the brain, perhaps.
