Wacky Word Wednesday - Irenic

Irenic

Irenic may look a lot like ironic,
but that is, at best, a mnemonic.
An irenic soul wants peace and isn't demonic.

An irenic might rather drink gin and tonic
and listen to something symphonic,
though it may seem hedonic,
because an irenic seeking peace in a glass seems ironic.

Every week I rhyme and define a new wacky word.
Come on over to indulge your inner nerd.
And, please let me know of any weird words you've heard.

    1. Tea works for me too,
      but not gin (ew).
      Sometimes whiskey...
      yet then I risk getting frisky. :)

  3. Does that mean a yoga teacher is an irenologist?

    I found "dougballs" the other day in the Urban Dictionary. It might not fit in with your rhymes, but I like it :)

    1. Ha! I like both of those words - irenologist and douballs. I'm going to have to visit the urban dictionary before I know if that's useable though. :)

  7. I think all of us a time or two
    When we are finding ourselves quite blue
    Find solace in the comfort of a glass
    Too bad sometimes it kicks us in our...
    ;)
