My clever friend, Libby, coined a new word this week: Cathargic. She was going for “cathartic” but her mouth took a sidetrack and wound up in an even more perfect expression.
If we combine:
ca·thar·sis (kəˈTHärsis/) noun the process of releasing, and thereby providing relief from, strong or repressed emotions
le·thar·gic (ləˈTHärjik/) adjective affected by lethargy; sluggish and apathetic
CATHARGIC (kəˈTHärjik/) adjective affected by that feeling you get on the Friday afternoon before a long weekend when you are really glad that the stress of the work week has reached an end but you are too worn out to celebrate
You feel me?
