Two words I love today


Example sentence: "I osculate between country and rock music."

This word is usually used in scientific and mathematics, which is why I love it. I could have used "go back and forth," but that's too wishy-washy. There's a pattern and deliberate movement between the two categories. It isn't arbitrary.

Actual dictionary definition


Example sentence: "It was fortuitous how I slept through my anthropology class, but it was cancelled anyway." (True story, btw)

Fortuitous is more than just lucky. It's the lining up of fate and tender mercies. It derives from "fortune," obviously, but it's disguised--kind of like how fortuitous things are often not what they seem at first.
