Jouska









dictionaryofobscuresorrows:

jouska: n. a hypothetical conversation that you compulsively play out in your head—a crisp analysis, a cathartic dialogue, a devastating comeback—which serves as a kind of psychological batting cage where you can connect more deeply with people than in the small ball of everyday life, which is a frustratingly cautious game of change-up pitches, sacrifice bunts, and intentional walks.

  1. "astrophe" <- I had no idea that was a thing, that there was a word for it. I do that more often than I actually have out-loud conversations with people. Sometimes I'm confused if I've said it or just thought it...
