Sometimes my brain gets stuck on a word, for no discernible reason, repeating it over and over, lingering over any linguistic uniqueness, increasing its importance to me in the immediate sense despite the fact that it's NOT important in the larger sense and if I do anything in particular with this word, there will be, at some future date, a great furrowing of brows as I wonder Why did I write an entire essay around this word? It's a boring word!
(For the curious among you, today's word is stochastic.)
