Lemony Snicket Series of Unfortunate Events books, crafted words like this into his books. It was a joy to see how the author of those books teach kids. If you’ve never read them, I suggest you give it a try. Kid’s books maybe but great stories none the less. Here’s a link to the first one.
Enjoy today’s not so jejune word.
Example of the word in use:
He breathed out slowly, “Stop being so damn jejune Abigail. I know you’re mad at me. Just talk to me.”
Write a poem, use jejune as the primary adjective for the object of your poem.
*Use either definition, but make it clear which you are using.
