Today’s word — velleity

So next time you’re late in fil­ing your tax return and the tax depart­ment sends a reminder, just send them a polite let­ter vouch­ing for your velle­ity. The tax­man will think the check (or cheque, as our Cana­di­an gram­mar guru Car­olanne Reynolds would write) is com­ing soon and you’ve been com­plete­ly forthright.
