I’m Concentrating in Law and Perendination

Thanks to Anu Garg’s A.Word.A.Day (AWAD) newsletter I learned a term my fellow procrastinators — and legions of current college seniors — will embrace: perendinate. It means “to put off until the day after tomorrow” (Garg quotes Mark Twain: “Never put off until tomorrow what you can do the day after tomorrow”) or, a definition that will resonate with many, “to stay at a college for an extended time.”   Isn’t that just great?  You aren’t ducking from the horrible economy or refusing to grow up;  you are perendinating!

  1. Dubious little term. Especially considering the word “end” is within it. Excuse me while I crawl into the fetal position and rock back and forth.
