SESQUIPEDALIAN


As if my lengthy day at work wasn't long enough, I was at work 2 hours later than I wanted to be tonight. I had found myself needing help and only a lynchburgsonian would be able to help me. But my favorite one had bailed on me 2 hours earlier. How dare she!! Search and find, I found one lone person 2 hours away (kind of ironic) still within instant messaging reach. He was online as active so I *pinged* him. Not only was he not able to help me because he doesn't have the super duper computer accesses my heroine possesses, but he was quite wordy about it. A full 1/2 hour later he was detailing how if asked the time, he would tell me how to make a watch. Now that was funny, in a "hey man, I just want my answer and leave for home" kind of way. His definition of sesquipedalian was a bit skewed and I think he rather fancies the word because of it's obnoxious quality. But by days end I was tired and worn. That word made my head explode out of laughter. I sort of like and can appreciate the word. My guess is that I will never use it again on purpose. Heck - it was hard enough to spell and find online. Even Miriam Webster didn't care for the word. But to educate:
--
SESQUIPEDALIAN
1. Having many syllables
2. Giving to or characterized by the use of long words

You silly goose, don't you have my cell phone for such emergencies? Or at least a signal you can shine in the night sky... though it isn't near dark enough out at normal working hours.

No Jadie - I have not built your Justice JadiePuff Signaler yet. I'm still working on your utility belt. And the only way YOU could have helped me would be to give me your password to the application and I wouldn't impune your integrity that way, Because I'm MMGL. I'll save the customer on Monday.
