A.Word.A.Daywith Anu Garg
noun: A sophisticated man; a man belonging to fashionable society.
adjective: Worldly; fashionable.
From French mondain (socialite), from Latin mundus (world). Earliest documented use: 1833.
“It’s reassuring, however, to see even this seasoned mondain go weak at the knees when he meets Catherine Deneuve, while being arm in arm with Julia Roberts almost causes him a nosebleed.”
Jonathan Romney; Gatekeeping Without Tears; Film Comment (New York); Jul/Aug 2017.
A THOUGHT FOR TODAY:One day I was speeding along at the typewriter, and my daughter -- who was a child at the time -- asked me, "Daddy, why are you writing so fast?" And I replied, "Because I want to see how the story turns out!" -Louis L'Amour, novelist (22 Mar 1908-1988)
