File this under “nerdiest question of all time,” but…
What vocab words are you into these days?
A couple years ago, I learned crepuscular, which feels appropriate for these dark winter days, and I’ve been telling my boys a lot recently to quit their histrionics.
And a funny story: I was just reading a newsletter from Pandora Sykes (the British journalist/podcaster/book genius, who we recently featured on Big Salad), and she recommended a pair of sneakers with one caveat: “They ship from the U.S., which is a bit of a ballache.” And when I read “ballache,” I pronounced it in my head as “ball-uh-shay” and googled it to see which new vocab word I was learning, how exciting, maybe with a similar meaning to “palaver,” which my British relatives often say?
It was ball ache.
Now I’m curious: What vocab words are you liking these days? Please share!
P.S. How to create a glowy home, and what do you love about the way you look?
