A Quickie: Idiotarod

Hopefully more to come today, since I’ve been away from my blog for a week and a half in Amsterdam, but first just a quick note on a new word that I found and love: Idiotarod. Not exactly sure how I would pronounce this, but clearly some cue should be taken from the original Iditarod—the world’s most famous sled-dog race. Instead, Idiotarod brings to mind the thousands of commuter vehicles, sit idly in their slowly moving lanes every weekday. [Thanks to Vica of La Vida Vica for coining such a great word!]
