Schlemiel: “Word of the Day” at Dictionary.Com

Dictionary.com - Schlemiel - Word of the Day

While I was in class this morning teaching, several of my friends sent me personal messages on Facebook telling me that the word “schlemiel” was Dictionary.com’s “word of the day”!

Here’s how they defined it:

Slangan awkward andunlucky person for whomthings never turn out right.

Hooray! The schlemiel lives!
