Wednesday Winner: Ennui

Two people suggested today’s Word of the Day!

Robert K. from Peoria, IL said it is “musical in sound” and JW-T from Bedford, TX said, “I taught high school English for 31 years, and I loved to tell my students they were responsible if ennui set in because I was going to dazzle them with knowledge everyday.”

Ennui means “a feeling of utter weariness and discontent resulting from satiety or lack of interest; boredom.”
