Y + enta = YENTA

yen·ta   noun \ˈyen-tə\: one that meddles; also: blabbermouth, gossip
definition from http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/yenta
This post makes me think back to my second post of this challenge when I did B for Babble. A Yenta often babbles, the need to "tell" can mean a constant stream of talk and gossip comes out of it. On the other hand, a Babbler will often gossip without meaning to, but that much "talk" is bound to have some gossip in it.

I don't want to be a Yenta, one who gossips or is a blabbermouth. But as much as I try to guard against that, I need to remember not to listen to it either.
