100 days to a better vocabulary with spam!!

I got a spam email with the word "hebephrenic" in the subject line. Curious as to whether that was a real word or not, I checked Webster and found hebephrenia is "a form of schizophrenia characterized especially by incoherence and delusions lacking an underlying theme." Wow. The many ways in which spam enriches my life and challenges my intellect...


  1. I'm dying here. And frantically trying to figure out how I can use "hebephrenia" in a story! *looks around for ED* Not that my current story is in any way incoherent or lacking an underlying theme...

  2. You know, I worked in psych for 7 years and I don't recall ever once hearing that term used.

    And Charli, I'm keeping an eye on you!

  3. I've taken to saving charts they send about various "body" parts. Very helpful. LOL
