of the Week
word or phrase to add to your army.
This looks like it might be pronounced (in-you-eye), but that is not so. Ennui is pronounced (on-we). Now, as far as definition goes, I would tell you what it means, but I am a little out-of-sorts. I'm rather dissatisfied with my life and don't feel like doing much right now. Do you know why? It is because I am filled with ennui.
I am actually ennui-free. I am full of life and excitement and do not suffer at all from this condition. You see, ennui means to be dissatisfied with life due to lack of things to do or lack of excitement. Students often experience ennui during summer vacation. Parents hear the Ennui Anthem--
"I don't have anyone to play with or anything to do.
My life is filled with ennui. I'm in need of something new."
A cat suffering with ennui.
I am Becky Lyn Rickman. I am a writer because I love words almost as much as I love the people in my life. I want to fill the world with magnificent words and then jump in and splash around in them. I live with Mr. Bingley and Mr. Darcy, my cats, but the only words they really love are "meat" and "gravy."
