Weirdly Specific Word of the Day – Agromania

  • by

Today's word is Agromania.

There are a lot of reasons to go live in the woods away from people. Of course, your faraway place does not have to be the woods or away from baristas. I imagine agromania takes place due to an overwhelming amount of presence in your current environment. Maybe one day everything will be calm and the place we wish to go is hectic and full of hustle and bustle.

One of my favorite songs is Nothing But Flowers by the Talking Heads. This tune is a great look at the reversal of the Jonni Mitchell classic Big Yellow Taxi. The difference between the two songs is that one tears down paradise for a parking lot while the other misses parking lots and highways. Either way, when the going gets tough we sometimes turn into agromaniacs.

 

The Illustrated Compendium of Weirdly Specific Words is fun and entertaining so I want to share. Tyler has a great sense of humor and I asked if I can record a Word of the Day post to help brighten everyone's day. I also think you should get a copy of the book.
