Fancy word Everygirls should know: dither
Why we chose this fancy word: When you need a better way to describe (a), your wavering attitude about which dress you’re wearing on your birthday, (b), whether or not to get the Rachel at your next hair appointment or, (c), if your Friday night will be spent cuddling with your dog watching Meryl Streep movies or out on the town in shoes you can’t walk in (you know which one we’re picking), go for dither, a lovely way to say you are vacillating amongst decisions.
Definition: dither (intransitive verb) pronunciation: dith-er
To act irresolutely. Indecisive.
Use this word in a sentence: Quit dithering, Carrie, and decide on a pair of Manolo’s already!
