word of the day - bagatelles, congeries


Bagatelles – an unimportant or insignificant thing

Congeries – a collection or aggregation

Use bagatelles and congeries in a sentence:

The unpaid bills piling up like snow drifts on the high plains, the crashing 401k, the pending investigation for wire fraud, the strange lesion that just wouldn’t go away, were mere bagatelles compared to the problem he faced now as he awoke, breathless, his head sprouting a congeries of wires, in the liquid filled pod—the last thing he remembered was being chased off the edge of a skyscraper by two bionic men in black suits—to realize he’d spent his entire existence imprisoned within the dank, gothic honeycomb of some inconceivably vast, alien brain.
