WORD OF THE DAY! 3/13/12

dolor [doh-ler]
1. sorrow, grief, anguish, heart break, despair.
2. melancholy, depression, down in the dumps, glum, misery.

lachrymose [lak-ruh-mohs]
1. suggestive of or tending to cause tears; mournful.
2. given to shedding tears readily; tearful.
EX. You could hardly understand true dolor until you understand the lachrymose moment of Pikachu's life. Sadder than the time he had to fight his own clone, sadder than the time Ash was turned to stone, and sadder than the time he found his fossilized dog under his old pizza joint-

The death of Pikachu's ketchup bottle at the drive-by slash of a Scyther. 

Still a better love story than Twilight.
