I’ve been trying to think of a word. It’s been driving me mad. It’s not a particularly obscure word, but for some reason it’s eluded me all day. I’ve broken out Roget’s. I’ve tried Googling around the definition. I’ve tried to remember in which book I came across it, and scanning the index. I’ve paged through old diaries trying to find it.
Five minutes ago, I surfed to dictionary.net, and beat my bollocks with bamboo if the word of the day - syncretic - is not the very one I’ve been straining to recall all day.
I must try and use this new power for good.
