Seems such an interesting word. Also from Jyoti’s Sheer Joy of Belongingness, after I re-read the first line when I got stuck on the third line. It is quite “piquant” how I skipped over the word in the first place.
Based on thefreedictionary.com, it stated its French origins in the 17th century.
Reflecting at my limited vocabulary, I wonder how many of you have used this word before? Nonetheless, I am glad from now on, there is another option from repeatedly going “interesting”.
