      I guess it's like when an apple tree is too high to pick from and too difficult to climb so you have to wait for the wind to make them fall

      I like the word.

      I'm going to write it down.

          My word yesterday was lambasted. Couldn't get it out of my head. It means to beat up severely or tongue lash severely. But then I have preseveration so repeating words are common for me.

            lambasted: adding juice to the lamb you are cooking in order to keep it moist.

                is that where it comes from? That actually makes a lot of sense

                  Here's what I found: Originates from law that allowed the collection of wood and fruit that had been blown down resulting in a free supply of food or wood for burning ect. Was particularly important when most land and estate was owned by royalty or lords and the picking of fruit or felling of trees was forbidden, thus when a storm or strong wind blew down a good supply was often referred to as a 'windfall'. https://www.answers.com/Q/What_is_th..._word_windfall
