Only one word for me this week, but it’s a good one. It came from an uncorrected proof of Today Will Be Different by Maria Semple.
1. fakakta – “As for why I couldn’t just admit that I had to learn from the god-damned newspaper that my sister has a daughter, so in a fakakta attempt to get back at her, I stole the keys of a woman with a daughter of the same name?”
According to Urban Dictionary, fakakta is derived from Yiddish and means that something is not working well.
