Word of The Day: Confectional

con·fec·tion·al [kuhn-fek-shuh-nl]

  1. An isolated place set aside for work, which drives specific urges for constant munching, often followed by bloated vocal remorse. [See cubicle or home office]
  2. A cathartic apology, often to a loved one, that is driven by the guilt of having ignored them while gorging on the sweet fruits of one’s labor [See workaholic]
  3. A place where creative inspiration, which drives the process of compounding, preparing, or making something delectable, begin with a burst of honest revelation.
