    I've been unable to find a definitive spelling for the colloquial term for that bump we all sit on from time to time called the dairy air or derriere. You know, the arse or is it the ... ? Anyway. If anyone knows the actual and accepted spelling for the k-word of mention, please let me know. I'd even appreciate more a link or reference to the definitive information.

    Dictionary.com says keister, and I believe them.

      Thanks. You know I couldn't find it in the dictionary online. I believe I even pulled up Webster at one point.

      I like Dictionary.com, because it often gives results from multiple dictionaries at once.

      You know, lisavollrath, I did try to find it there initially, but didn't get anywhere. I may have chosen a day their site was buggy, but regardless I wasn't successful.

    I've always spelled it Keister but, taking a look...one moment...According to Merriam Webster, the spelling 'keester' is a variation of the word 'keister' so I am sticking with my spelling.

      Thanks. This means I have some variety.
