Words, Just for Fun

Just for fun, here are some words that I think are awesome!

Non sequitur – something that isn’t really related to the thing that came before it.  For example, “Bob sent me flowers at work, a dozen roses.  Why did you open the window?”

Colloquial – a word or phrase that is a step up from slang; often one that is more commonly used by a specific region or generation.

Filial – related to family, especially an offspring-type relationship.  “He had to go to his dad’s party to fulfill a filial obligation.”

Lassitude – a fancy way of describing someone who is lying around, either because they are sick or because they are relaxing.  “The combination of the hammock and the sun filled her with lassitude.”
