    Thoroughly Depressing Word of the Day: Heartworm

    Heartworm (noun)*: A relationship or friendship that you can’t get out of your head, which you thought had faded long ago but is still somehow alive and unfinished, like an abandoned campsite whose smoldering embers still have the power to start a forest fire.
