narcissism

Do you have a friend who constantly turns the conversation to themselves, as in "That's great about your winning the award but do you think these pants look good on me?" They're putting their narcissism, or excessive love of self, on display.

In psychoanalysis, narcissism is erotic gratification derived from excessive love for yourself, and is considered to be a normal developmental stage. The reference is to Narcissus, a beautiful youth in Greek mythology who fell in love with his reflection in a body of water and was changed into the flower narcissus, which grows near water.

Usage Examples:
He's crafted another aggressively soulless cautionary tale here about Hollywood narcissism — and it's a corker.
Los Angeles Times
He alternates between gallantry and gaucheness, romanticism and narcissism, solicitude and selfishness, all within one series of sexts.
Slate
The leader of the free world puts his narcissism ahead of the safety of millions.
Wall Street Journal
Narcissism is the charge that’s thrown at Snowden—that he thinks he gets to decide what’s secret.
The New Yorker
Beneath the narcissism and empty fabulousness lies a desperate quest for redemption.
Salon
We have hollowed out the holy call for self-examination with narcissism.
Time
Netanyahu's narcissism, political ambition, and his too close Republican alignment is hurting Israel, making Israel increasingly a political football instead of enjoying easy bi-partisan support.
Wall Street Journal
Blame Williams for whatever combination of insecurity, dishonesty and narcissism led him to embellish — misbehavior for which he is appropriately being held accountable now.
Washington Post

decoration

A decoration is anything used to make something more attractive or festive. If you’re having a Valentine’s Day party, drape your house in red and pink decorations. Decoration is also a type of honor, like a soldier's medal or stripe.

Usage Examples:
Consider the advantages of splitting the cost of furnishings, decorations, kitchen and bathroom necessities, and cleaning supplies.
US News
The Victoria Cross is Britain's highest military decoration for valour.
BBC
But it has some interesting decorations that include gilt bows and swags with three agate cabochons embedded in the base, topped with an amethyst.
Forbes
A gilt-framed engraving of George Washington was hung in front of the box for extra decoration.
Washington Post
“No comment,” Tran says sheepishly when I ask him about his modified office decoration.
Forbes

Examples: Cars, houses, persons Big Smile

Words We Don't Hear Anymore

Floppy Disk

Definition:

: a thin plastic disk coated with magnetic material on which data for a computer can be stored

About the Word:

The first known use of the word floppy disk was in 1972, and while the last known use isn't marked it's certainly a term, and tool, that has fallen out of use. We're pretty sure our kids have no idea what a floppy disk is (and, er, equally sure we have a stash of them somewhere with "important things to save" on them).

Ironically, the icon that often means "save" on software and apps today is in fact an image of a floppy disk.

Gallivant

Definition:
1 : to go about usually ostentatiously or indiscreetly with members of the opposite sex
2 : to travel, roam, or move about for pleasure

About the Word:
"To gallivant all over town" sounds like such great fun, and yet you don't hear the term much these days. It didn't have an entirely positive connotation, but gallivanting at least allowed for a bit of naughty fun without being vulgar.

Britches

Definition:
: breeches, trousers

About the Word:
A variation on breeches, an old word for trousers or pants, britches isn't a word you're likely to see on clothes racks these days. But the word persists in the idiom too big for one's britches – still as applicable today as ever.
That phrase refers to someone who has an exaggerated sense of their own importance, position, or abilities; and with bosses today complaining about millennials who think they can be CEO after a month on the job, we just might see this term come back into vogue.

Dungarees

Definition:
: clothes made usually of blue denim

About the Word:
Dungaree refers to the cloth we now more frequently call denim, or to clothes made of denim. Now we call them jeans.
A lot more has changed than just the word: when dungarees was used, the items were inexpensive, hardworking gear for folks whose work required it. Now jeans are considered business casual for people who sit at a desk, and cocktail wear for the happy hour set – with price tags in the $200 range not uncommon.

Icebox

Definition:
: refrigerator

About the Word:
The word icebox may seem like a throwback to the age of TV dinners and Jell-O molds, but it’s actually much older than that.
The first known use of icebox dates to 1792 – a long time before the invention of the household fridge. However the word is a relative neologism compared to refrigerator – which can be traced back as early as 1611.
