File this underneath “nerdiest dilemma of all time,” but…

What vocab words are you into these days?

A few many years ago, I figured out crepuscular, which feels correct for these darkish wintertime days, and I’ve been telling my boys a good deal recently to quit their histrionics.

Also, a amusing blunder: I was reading through a publication from Pandora Sykes (the British journalist/podcaster/book genius, who we recently highlighted 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 phrase I was discovering, how exciting, it’s possible with a identical this means to “palaver,” which my British family members frequently say?


It was ball ache.

Now I’m curious: What vocab terms are you liking these days? You should educate us!

P.S. How to generate a glowy home, and what do you really like about the way you look?
