eric heiman, a gd instructor of mine, once used the word MILQUETOAST to describe a photo of someone I took...and I thought he said Milk Toast....and I thought that meant bland or boring. I dunno....milk soaked bread seems like it would taste like nothing I guess??....Turns out it means:
a very timid, unassertive, spineless person, esp. one who is easily dominated or intimidated:
i.e. a milquetoast who's afraid to ask for a raise.
apparantly Im not the only confused one....google image searched it:
