Re: Re: Broccoli: a Verb in Need of Meaning

Idiomdrottning shared that she often uses the broccoli emoji as a stronger form a broken heart symbol. I find that charming, but I agree with her that maybe it shouldn't translate to the meaning of broccoli in verb form.

JBanana offered an anecdote of trying to teach their children to eat broccoli by tasting a small piece enough times. I suppose there's some other term for this, but I like it.

How about this:


Verb, broccolied, broccolied, broccoli·ng. To learn to tolerate or even like something that is good for you but initially objectionable.
