I have a Word-of-the-Day calendar at my desk at work.  It’s my response to my neighbor’s “You Know You’re a Redneck When…” daily calendar on their desk.  On Friday’s I do not forward through the weekend, as I’m a little supersitious about getting ahead of time.

So this morning I pulled off Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.  Yesterday’s word was “celerity”, a noun meaning “rapidity of motion or action.”  Benjamin Franklin used celerity as a synonymn for velocity.

How appropriate.



  1. This post makes me want celery.

  2. Fast celery, probably.
