Sagacious would be one who is sage like.. ummm so to have the wisdom of a sage.... I think it has to be seasoned with sage.. like a turkey.
😄 or someone who is like an old soul or just plain old.
's all that and a bag of quips.

*Lynx nods with profound sagacity.

I'm a nerd, so I have recognized all these words. I don't recommend being a nerd... it makes people look at you funny when you use a word you think explains exactly what you mean, but they have no idea what you said.
Yes, you do seem nerdy, I think I learn more toward quirky.

Is quips the next word? Honestly, I am not nerdy enough to know that one. Well, quip... seems like an issue or problem, or one who has issues with someone or something?
I like to think I'm whimsical more than nerdy or quirky.

I think I need super hard for the king nerd here... so here is a level 2 difficult word

eudaemonia

A quip is a light joke, usually a very short one. If you have an issue with something, that's a quibble.

And as my name is Isaac, and as Isaac means laughter, and as I seem to try to live up to my name... I guess I'm eudaimonic. (I will allow the e instead of i in "eudaemonic" though, as it is an official alternative spelling.)

Wait, your actual name is Isaac?

Yes.

I could expatiate on that, but sometimes a short answer is better. Besides, there's your new word. Expatiate.

Expatiate. Explain or expound on something while providing intricate detail and background...starting from the very beginning, and leaving nothing out?

This might be too niche for me. I had to look up everything so far. I should've taken up Latin instead of calculus, especially since it only lowered my GPA when I bombed it. But then again, didn't God tell Moses to step into a niche?

Very clever! Niche. Hmmm...
I was hoping that most of these words would stump the average English speaker. So I think we are doing well.
So Calculus.. wow, at least you could wrap your mind around that beast enough to entertain it for a semester.
I never made it that far. I took a left at Albuquerque missing the road sine and cosine and went off on a mathematical tangent. Well no tangent actually, lol.

I heard somebody say Newton invented calculus during a plague. Now THAT'S isolation! They also commented that you would have to be very, very bored to invent calculus.

Oh my garble, I believe it! I spent just about the entire semester with my face in the textbook, zonked out.

I was trying to find an antonym for boredom and Mr. Google shared this little bit of brilliance to chew on. I like it!!

The opposite of boredom is peace. Boredom can be stressful in that the individual experiencing boredom is resisting the now, thereby creating inner tension. If boredom is resistance to what is presently perceived as undesirable, then the opposite of being bored is peace, or non-resistance to the now.

I think peace with boredom is an abberation. It's best not to abscond from it but embrace the simple moments in life. I enjoy living in a state of alacrity.
