How to Kick off a Vacation with a Bang

Today's word of the day...
anoesis /an-oh-NEE-sus/, noun:
a state of mind consisting of pure sensation or emotion without cognitive content.


Used in a sentence:
In a frenzied rush to unbuckle my seatbelt and cup my hand under the chin of my barfing child, I was filled with complete and utter anoesis.  Only later, did I my brain register with reason, "Did I really think my hand could catch all that vomit?"

"Umm... Boy? Do you think you could pull over sometime soon?"

What a perfect way to begin a family vacation.
