Sunday – Hibernation

PN:

I learned a new word today. “Epigone”. Although I have the highest regard for myself, I do believe this word describes me to a “T”. The meaning is:


Word Origin & History

epigone

undistinguished scions of mighty ancestors, (sometimes in L. plural form epigoni ), from Gk. epigonoi , in classical use with reference to the sons of the Seven who warred against Thebes, pl. of epigonos born afterward from epi- + -gonos , from root of gignesthai to be born related to genos “race, birth, descent” (see genus).

Or, more simply,

World English Dictionary

rarean inferior follower or imitator

C19: from Greek eigonos – one born after, from epigignesthai; see epigene

I am a super-sized fan of Andrew Klavan. He has been doing a series on the upcoming mid term election in the States. Here is the latest (part 3) and links to the previous 2. You needn’t see them in order:

– Guide to the Elections: Part 3 – The Extremists Are Coming!

– Guide to the Elections: Part 1 – The Economy

– Guide to the Elections: Part 2 – War!

You might like this one, too:

He is worthy of Ramirez levels of praise…….
