Word of the Week #52

myokymia - [mahy-uh-kim-ee-uh] - noun

Twitching of individual segments of a muscle.

The myokymia of my eyelid made the disgusting man on the bus think I was constantly winking at him.

*I've always wanted to know what this random twitchiness was called.

It's easier to twitch than to say it.

I have that twitchy problem all the time. Of course, it makes me think of that movie "The Kid" with Bruce Willas where the lil' kid says, "You're a chickless, dogless, jerk with a twitch!"
