Word for the Day

I ran across an interesting article the other day (as I often do): 23 Names of Emotions You Feel, but Can’t Explain, which led me to the Word of the Day for today:


It's defined in the article by James Sama as, "A conversation in which everyone is talking, but nobody is listening."

It's a great word for this raucous and uninspiring election season. And I would add a new word of my own to describe an individual carrying on such a useless conversation:


There are, after all, a vast number of them nowadays, and they deserve their own word.

Have a good day. Don't get caught up in an anecdoche with an anecdouche, and you'll be happier and better adjusted.

More thoughts tomorrow.

Yes! They're just nattering on, and no real attempts to have a serious national debate is going on.

Anecdouche says it very well. You too; have a nice day which I suspected started already for you!

Words to remember!

They can be as anecdouchy as they want!

Linda Kay said...

I keep thinking "this too shall pass"!

Definitely that word's time has arrived.
