parch=thirsty?

the other day, cengal told me, "Mummy, I'm so parched!".
what? parched?
"apa ya?" I asked my hubby.
"thirsty lah!" he answered.

i never used that word. never heard of it either. she got the word from the Barbie DVD that she always watch. hey... not bad! improve her vocabulary, and mine too... ha ha ha

dalam diam-diam, i searched the meaning of the word in the www.dictionary.com! here is the result:

parch–verb (used with object)
1. to make extremely, excessively, or completely dry, as heat, sun, and wind do.
2. to make dry, hot, or thirsty: Walking in the sun parched his throat.
3. to dry (peas, beans, grain, etc.) by exposure to heat without burning; to toast or roast slightly: A staple of the Indian diet was parched corn.
4. to dry or shrivel with cold.
