Word for Wednesday (W4W)

Lackadaisical

I thought about this word a few weeks ago and meant to write it for KittyKats Word for Wednesday a few times but to be honest I just couldn’t be arsed*. Which when you think of it, is pretty apt for this word.

I do love the sound of the word and the melodic sound it makes when you say it out loud or in your head. It’s particularly melodic when you pronounce it like we do in this part of the world – it’s more like lax-e-daisy-cal. Like a gentle ride at a fairground, up and down…

Anyway, I do like the word and could write more about it, but my mood hasn’t shifted and I can’t be arsed to write anymore. Might write again next Wednesday, if I feel a little less lackadaisical…

* “Couldn’t be arsed” is a particularly Irish saying for a lack of enthusiasm.
