The Word Is …. Toxic
The Oxford Dictionaries announced their 2018 Word Of The Year. And it's 'toxic'. Hard to disagree with the choice. People use that word to describe a lot of things and situations this year. Other word up for word of the year, that didn't quite make it? 'Gaslighting'. 'TechLash'. But I don't see 'Dilly Dilly' on the list.
Here's hoping that next year's word of the year is 'Happiness'. Wouldn't that be a great chance of pace.
