Word of the Day
1 (of a place) not occupied; empty.
1.1 (of a position or employment) not filled.
2 Having or showing no intelligence or interest.
Middle English from Old French, or from Latin vacant- ‘remaining empty’, from the verb vacare.
They asked him what he though about using vacant so soon after using vacate as Word of the Day.
[His answer is typical. He had no reason. He might actually be as vacuous as he has often seemed. Maybe he should go on a vacation! And you well may wonder if the vacuum will be filled (and filed) sometime soon.]
