Without further ado, the word of the day is................................................................drum roll please......
FRIPPEROUS! I know what you're saying, that's not a real word, you made that up! Well, actually you're spot on. I did make that word up. However, it is based on an actual word. This word is frippery. I swear to you frippery is a real word. While it is fun to say, frippery is really hard to use in a sentence. It's just awkward to incorporate into conversation. Frippery means an "article worn for show: a showy item of clothing or an adornment worn for display or effect". To use it in a sentence: Your shutter shades are full of frippery and your entire ensemble is pretentious. Awkward sentence right? Right. So to solve this problem, frippery needed to have an adjective form. After trying out fripperful, friptastic, and friptabulous, my roommate came up with fripperous. It was an obvious winner because it's so fun to say! Example sentence: Those shutter shades are fripperous and so is your so-called ironic t-shirt. Simple correct? Yes, it is quite simple. So, to make this an actual word, actual people need to use it. So, readers, as actual people, please start using fripperous in conversation. When you discuss hipsters, instead of calling them pretentious, call them fripperous. Lauren, please do not be offended by this. I do not consider you a hipster. You don't think that everyone is beneath you and you don't listen to bands that don't even exist yet. You are not fripperous, you are stupendously amazingly awesome.
It doesn't get much more fripperous than this
So, go forth and use fripperous in your conversation. Use it in your blogposts even! I leave you with this video by the hilarious Brian Regan, in which he discusses the confusing nature of the English language. Enjoy.
