Withenay's Wednesday Word - a series about words and their meanings.
Sometimes the word is chosen because I like it, sometimes because it is unusual, sometimes because I have heard or read it in the previous week; often because that is just where the dictionary took me. Together we can expand our vocabulary, inch by inch (or maybe letter by letter). Your challenge is to invent a sentence in the comments box that includes it.
faintness, weakness, weariness, languor (a noun)
from Latin lassus faint
It is how one feels after a book launch party.
It is how one feels after writing posts for one's book blog tour.
It is how one feels when one stays up late at night then is woken by the dog early in the morning.
It is how one feels when no-one else in the family empties the dishwasher.
Or puts the washing out.
Or contemplates the ironing board.
Or tidies away the games.
Or sorts out the paperwork.
Or plans the food for the coming week.
It is how one feels when all one wants to do is curl up in a comfy chair and read a book.
So I just might do that.
