This sentence in the latest New Yorker regarding the inevitable end of Kobe Bryant's career contains this sentence:

"Wilkins was two years younger than Bryant at the time of his hobbling, and had pestled the joints in his knees, elbows, and ankles for about half as many minutes."

And that my friends, my be the most perfect, descriptive, use of a verb I've seen in years. I cannot fathom how I will ever be able to use 'pestle' as a verb in normal conversation, but it's on my bucket list.

My bucket list kind of sucks.
