Word of the Day: Desultory

Desultory, adj.

– lacking in consistency, constancy, or visible order; disconnected; fitful
– digressing from or unconnected with the main subject; random
– passing or jumping from one thing to another, especially in a fitful way; unmethodical
– occurring in a random or incidental way; haphazard

My favorite part about these definitions? How they all begin with at least a seven-word definition, followed by a semi-colon, then a one-word definition. Why not just use the one word and be done with it?
