Vocabulary Notes

My friend Pat passed the following on this morning. It struck me as quite wonderful.

Dad does “interesting vocabulary” notes. When they get big enough, he mails them to a list of people that have expressed interest. On the latest list: Verfuscht: [From the German verfuschen, “bungle,botch, make a mess of one’s life.”] ((fair-PFOOSHT)) Dad’s commentary: Say this aloud three times when you are blue and you will absolutely begin to feel better. Say it aloud after three beers and all our problems will go away.
