This word was used in the early 1900s, and in layman’s terms, it represents sheer laziness in the morning. So, next time you call in sick because you can’t see yourself getting dressed, grabbing your keys and driving to work, you can tell your boss you came down with a bad case of dysania.
If you always feel like you can’t do what you’re supposed to do today, and you always leave it for some other day, then you’re a chronic procrastinator. But if you were living in the 19th century, people would say that you tend to perendinate, which sounds pretty much alike.
This is the kind of thing that you do right before you get slapped in the face and you start regretting your horrible life choices. But in the 16th century, this word described someone who was reckless and did something they shouldn’t have.
