vagary [ˈveɪgərɪ vəˈgɛərɪ] n.
I read David Levithan’s “Lover’s Dictionary.” It was AWESOME. It’s a novel about love and the idea of love written in dictionary format. It isn’t arranged in chronological order but rather alphabetical (well duh, captain obvious, it’s a dictionary. Haha.) I have a new favorite word. I found it in that book. It’s VAGARY.
According to Merriam-Webster free online dictionary, vagary means:
an erratic, unpredictable, or extravagant manifestation, action, or notion.
But according to Levithan’s Lover’s Dictionary:
The mistake is thinking there can be an antidote to the uncertainty.
God, I love Levithan. He’s a genius. If only I could write like him, I’d stop studying and just write, write, write. I don’t know what I’m doing with this post but whatever. I guess, I just wanted to share my new favorite word. Sorry, my life is full of vagaries. And you’ll witness it in this blog.
