Word of the Week #62

velleity - [veh-LEE-uh-tee] - noun

1. The lowest degree of desire; imperfect or incomplete volition.
2. A slight wish or inclination.

At my call, the cat leisurely stood up, stretched both her front legs and back legs, stopped to wash behind her ear after a few steps, and wound her way across the room to me, displaying for anyone to see her velleity for obeying her owner.
