Sunday Rest: Blursday. Word Not To Use Today.

The word Blursday may be clumsy, but I have to admit it's just what you need at this time of year.

It'd probably be best not to use it to date a letter to a government department, or your Last Will and Testament; and neither is it terribly helpful when arranging a Zoom call; but, gosh, it does sum up the way a lot of us feel at the moment.

Blursday...a day when you're not sure what day it is. 

As a matter of public information, today is a Sunday. But I only know because I'm writing a Sunday Rest for The Word Den.

Sunday Rest: Blursday. The word blur might be a variant of the word blear. In the 1200s blere meant to make dim.
