n.— «It’s SO hot that if I wash my clothes in the Haji washing machine (that’s shorthand for anything bought locally, and by the way, “Haji,” Lloyd tells me, is not a pejorative term since it means “wise man.” Marines use the term as a prefix for anything. “Haji-movies,” “hajified,” you name it.)» —“Marines in Iraq: Reporter’s notebook; But it’s a dry heat” by Gordon Lubold in Camp Hurricane Point, Iraq Marine Times July 17, 2004.
