esquivalience

the new yorker explains esquivalience, a non-word from the new oxford american dictionary. it’s definition there: “the willful avoidance of one’s official responsibilities; the shirking of duties.”

it is too bad that it is not a real word, because that pretty perfectly captures how i spend vast stretches of my time.

i want to write more about this, but work beckons.
