Superior Person’s Tuesday: Longanimity

A defense strategy for any angry teenager.

Longanimity n. Suffering in silence over a period of time, while brooding on revenge.

“That’s O.K. Mom; I accept your decision with complete longanimity.”

Don’t think this argument is over yet – her longanimity will come back in the long run.

On Tuesdays we offer up a Superior Word for the edification of our Superior Readers, via the volumes of the inimitable Peter Bowler. Be on the look out for a new edition of The Superior Person’s Complete Book of Words, now available for purchase.
