Shakespearean Imagination

When shall we [three] meet again?

It's Wednesday again, which means another installment of Shakespearean Imagination!

I’m currently in New England, home of the Boston Red Sox, who lead the MLB World Series 3-2 against the St. Louis Cardinals. Game 6 – which could be the final game, if Boston succeeds – will be held tonight. If St. Louis wins, there will be a Game 7 tomorrow night – also All Hallow’s Eve, or Hallowe’en.

In light of this confluence of exciting events, I predict that the atmosphere around here is going to be:

zany : za•ny / ˈzānē / (noun) (adjective) :

- An erratic or eccentric person.

- Amusingly unconventional and idiosyncratic.

Synonyms as a noun: eccentric - oddity - weirdo
Synonyms as an adjective: eccentric - peculiar - odd - unconventional - strange - bizarre - weird

First seen in Shakespeare's Love’s Labours Lost (written 1594 - 1595). The full text of the play may be found here.
