Periphrasis

Here’s what’s weird: Dictionary.com’s Word of the Day has related to my life every day since I started following it on their app. I’ll show you what I mean…

Periphrasis!
A noun meaning the use of an unnecessarily long or roundabout form of expression.

Here’s the relation: Today, I’m working on my social platforms, like this blog page, my about.me page, my Etsy shop and more. I’m trying my best to transcend what the world should know about me without too much PERIPHRASIS. It’s a fine line for a chatty, socialite like myself.

Another relation: When describing Dictionary.com’s correlation with my life, I decided to use an example instead of a PERIPHRASIS.
