word of the day

sophomoric sahf-MOR-ik adjective

*1 : conceited and overconfident of knowledge but poorly informed and immature
2 : of, relating to, or characteristic of a sophomore

This reminds me of the time “sophomore” came up in high school as a vocabulary word — when we were freshmen, appropriately. It means “wise fool,” which conveniently also applies to those of us in our 20s.
