So Much for Vocabillary

or, Why Your Friends Should Always Read Your Work First

I'm rewriting an old short story for hopeful publication, and I asked my Wayside girls to read it over yesterday. Apparently, "laconic" does NOT mean something like "sluggish; uncaring."

It means "using or involving the use of a minimum of words : concise to the point of seeming rude or mysterious."

My vocabulary bubble has been burst.

Thanks, Rach ;).

Hey, even I had to use the dictionary to figure it out. :)
