… … lassitude
The word I think I wanted was latitude but then this popped into my head and my internal dictionary offered up “Cross between a dog and a grid reference“. But no, the oracle of lexicon that is the Internet offered up:
1. weariness of body or mind from strain, oppressive climate, etc.; lack of energy; listlessness; languor.
2. a condition of indolent indifference: the pleasant lassitude of the warm summer afternoon.
That is a perfect description of how I’m feeling.
So from now on, I am going to live my life within the dictionary parameters of lassitude.
English. Marvelous language. Think that calls for a drink.
