I wrote a story called “Power Ballad” a while back. I wrote it as a joke, really: it’s about a guy trying to pick up a heavily tattooed woman. . . in a haltertop. I’d spelled it, “haltertop,” but my editor changed it to “halter-top.”
More than fine. . . Because Wordnik. the online dicitonary, chose my word usage for its entry, “halter-top.”
By the way, the story is meant to be a bit funny–it’s by no means a serious work.
I’m in the dictionary now!
