A friend of mine who no longer works with me sent a link to words that have no English equivalent.
One that isn’t in the very top but is my favorite:
I think this word is the perfect word to describe how you might feel when giving your kid a hug goodnight or when you are greeting them when they come home. When my daughter isn’t being a rodent (and sometimes when she is, admittedly) this is a regular thing.
Things you feel about that intensely, those are the things you would die or kill for.
No, I’m not planning on dying or killing – there’s no hidden meaning here.
Anyone else got a word that they’d add?
President Obama told an audience in Ohio that poor ventilation systems that make students sick is a reason to pass his jobs plan, the “American Jobs Act.”
“Some of the schools, the ventilation is so poor it could make students sick,” Obama claimed.
“How do we expect our kids to do their very best in a situation like that? The answer is we can’t,” Obama said.
I don’t know just how disingenuous a person can be but this guy is plumbing depths. Maybe duplicitous works here, too.
