Natalie: [Ted just broke up with Natalie] I'm not the one for you?In any case, I've recently discovered that I seem to have another favorite word. This one not so much because I like it, but because I seem to be using it a lot recently. That word is quizically. Any friends of mine may be reading this thinking, "Hey, I don't think I've ever heard Jack use that word." Well here's the thing, I seem to only use it in my inner monalogue. It's generally in the frame of "That person is looking at me quizically." Come to think of it, maybe I shouldn't be so concerned with the fact that I've been using the word quizically in my inner monologue so much as I should be concerned with the fact that I seem to be receiving a larger number of quizical looks as of late... I should probably look into this.
Ted: I'm sorry. I just thought the mature thing to do...
Natalie: It's my birthday!
Ted: Yes, I know I didn't mean to...
Natalie: It's my birthday, and you're telling me I'm not the one for you?
Ted: It's really not such a big deal. I mean it's the odds. It's like you lost the lottery.
Natalie: Oh, so dating you is like winning the lottery?
Ted: No, no, no. I didn't mean that.
Natalie: So what's the problem?
Ted: It's… I can't explain it.
Ted: It's... ineffable.
Natalie: I'm not "F-able"?
Since I'm on the topic of vocabulary words, I picked up a new word which I really like about 15 minutes ago. That word being immemorial, which means reaching beyond the limits of memory, tradition, or recorded history. Now, I just need to find a context to use it.
