A New Word For Our Times

Occasionally I've posted on my daughter's creativity (such as here and here). But the other day she came up with a good one that seems appropriate to describe everything from presidential elections and Olympic fervor to teen-age girls. The word:

"Drama-matic." I really don't know if she meant to say it, but I like it. Rather, I like the word, but I'm not usually up for automatic-drama. Such as:

  • Telling my three kids to pick one movie - drama-matic
  • Leaving a cake in the office fridge with a note to leave it alone - drama-matic
  • Going shopping. Period. Drama-matic
I'm sure you can come up with a longer list of drama-matic moments. They're like appendicitis - something useless that hurts anyway.
