Quotidian Marks

Buy the new book, "Beaucoup Arlo & Janis!"Today's "Arlo & Janis!"
Today’s classic A&J comes from less than a year ago, but I’m showing it to you again, because it relates to our conversation about subtlety. To wit, sometimes I am to blame! I admit it. The above cartoon probably would have worked better for most of us if I had used the word “mundane” instead of “quotidian.” The words are virtually synonymous, and more people probably are familiar wit the former. However, I’m human! I learn a great new word like “quotidian” and I have to use it. My old journalism professors warned us about that, but I wouldn’t listen.
