Because I (not-so-secretly) love words, I subscribe to a Word of the Day from the Oxford English Dictionary.
Today’s was my virtual fortune cookie:
Over-busy: Excessively busy or occupied; interfering or obtrusively officious. Also (of a pattern, design, etc.): excessively
elaborate or detailed.
OK, I get it: today I broke a water glass by not watching where I was putting it down, spilled half of dinner into the stove while looking the other way, and secretly read email during a conference call.
Over-busy: time to take a breath, slow down, and pay attention!
What’s your word of the day today?
