To all of our readers and writers – Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! I hope everyone is getting (or has received) a fun game this winter to help make the short days pass by quicker.
If you’re down in the wrong hemisphere, disregard that, and I hope you don’t get a sunburn today while you sunbathe!
While you’re in between bouts of unwrapping gifts today – you can help me think of a new Sniglet for a situation I keep running into.
About a year ago, I coined a term “Chapathy” which I define as that period of internal deliberation when you decide you aren’t sure if you like a book enough to finish it BUT your Kindle tells you that you’re already 70+% of the way through – and part of you just thinks you should finish the book as you’ve already committed so much time to it.
There is a gaming equivalent, when you get far enough into a game that you know it isn’t for you… yet, you don’t want to quit because everyone else is still playing and enjoying it – and part of you thinks that you should just finish it out to get the payoff after investing so much time in it to start with…… What do I call that?
Anyways, Merry Christmas!
