I AM MUGGY, YOU ARE MUGGY, IT IS MUGGY

MUGGY:
Warm and extremely humid.

Origins:

1731, from mugen "to drizzle" (c.1390), from O.N. mugga "drizzle, mist," related to mjukr "soft," or O.N. mygla "mold," which is cognate with L. mucus "snot."

EXAMPLE: It feels muggy in here.

BETTER EXAMPLE: The air feels like soft, moldy, snot.

MUGGY.  MUGGIER.  MUGGIEST.  It's UGLY, UGLIER, UGLIEST.  Couldnt' agree more Mrs. L.

It looks like muggy left us and went to you.  Today felt like good-old furnace hot, the way it usually does.

So it's baked snot vs. soft moldy snot.  (You just can't win.)
