The other evening, we were hanging out, and Alex busted out the word “postprandial,” as in “Let’s take a postprandial walk with Toby.” NICE. (This was my reaction.)

I’m going to go out on a limb and say that there’s nothing more attractive than hearing someone use a vocab word in regular conversation.

So here’s the weekly challenge: Choose a favorite vocab word and pepper it into conversation this week. Are you game? Here are the 250 most difficult SAT words, if you’d like inspiration. Peripatetic. Innocuous. Sycophantic. Taciturn…Which word will you choose? Let’s nerd out!

P.S. British words and annoying words.
