dot
 n.— «Trudeau surveyed Brian’s intact arm. “You’ve got dots.” “Yeah.” Dots are soldier-speak for little beads of shrapnel buried under the skin. Sometimes they take a lifetime to work their way back to the surface.» —“Doonesbury’s War” by Gene Weingarten Washington Post Oct. 20, 2006. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
