Sunday Rest: flexitarian. Word Not To Use Today.

A flexitarian is someone who eats meat, fish and vegetables, just like anybody else, but wants to look fashionable and clever about it.

Will adopting such a fancy label fool anyone?

I doubt it. Anyway, why not call oneself a vegetarian and then eat the bacon anyway, in the way of traditional hypocrites?

Word Not To Use Today: flexitarian. This word comes from flexible, plus -arian to make it sound like vegetarian. The Latin flexus means bent.
