This word honestly just makes me very happy. It has such a pleasant tone, and just really grabs the attention. It also makes me sounds like a British grandma, but we do not talk about that.

Hello and welcome to Word of the Week! Here, I inform you about a word that I believe is not used enough and how you can use it in a sentence. The word of this week is:


Dandy: “Dandy” can be both a noun and an adjective. We are looking at the adjective. It means: Good or neat. More often it is used in a sarcastic manner, when things are bad. The noun is: a man who pays a lot of attention to his looks.

Example sentences:

- “I think we’re stuck.” “Well isn’t that just dandy.”

- What a dandy young man. He should come over more often. (really leaning into the British grandma here)

- I am just having the most dandy of days. First I overslept, then I dropped my plate, and now it is raining.
