Superior Person's Tuesday!

Now that many Boston/Cambridge area college students have returned from their Spring Breaks . . .

n. - Total refreshment; revival or revitalization. You stagger into the bar, collapse onto the stool immediately facing the bathycolpian (q.v.) barmaid, and gasp: "Refocillate me!" Whether she understands or misunderstands you, there is at least some chance that you will achieve refocillation.

Each Tuesday, we’ll offer up a Superior Word for the edification of our Superior Readers, via the volumes of the inimitable Peter Bowler. You can purchase all or any of the four Superior Person’s Books of Words from the Godine website. Refocillation appears in the Second.
