And I thought I was wordy

Let’s start with a moment of honesty: I’m self conscious about how many words I use to say anything. I hear myself on the phone all day, and constantly think that I should simplify what I say, and how I say it.

So it was perversely satisfying for me to see the following words in one sentence of a cover letter this morning:

multiplicity, pedagogy, systemic reformation, efficacious modalities, citizenry

I may be wordy, but at least I don’t sound like a caricature of an effete intellectual.
