In today’s world, we’ve subbed this term for the word, “children” who are like vampires thirsty for cash. All jokes aside, it’s nice to see that not much has changed over the last 300 years. Just that particular word, but we still run into those “friends” who always manage to leave their wallets at home.
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 would’ve been living in the 19th century, people would say that you tend to perendinate, which sounds pretty much alike.
