Last week, I highlighted the use of the word ‘wanton’ . This week, the word is ‘indolent’. However, ‘indolent’ is not alone; the word works best when matched with ‘passion’. Yes, you all thought passion was only hot and fiery. In this novel the passion is lazy and slothful.
I also just love the phrase “swagger sleekly”; have to try and use that in conversation sometime.
