Aloha, readers. I couldn't choose only one word this year. Both minatory and sodality are beautiful-handsome. Trying to choose drove me to distraction, so I gave up.
And then (once I had decided) I remembered an article written about 15 years ago, possibly in Boston, about the New York Times wedding pages. The article said that the featured couples usually had one person who was the predatory sort and one who was the peace, love, and happiness sort--something like that.
Minatory and sodality?
