The Devil's Dictionary continued…

I have been enamored for many years with Ambrose Bierce’s satirical lexicon The Devil’s Dicitionary in which he redefines words with a slightly sarcastic and sometimes darker meaning. So here are a couple that I have either picked from forgotten sources or created myself. Feel free to chime in with your own “devilish” definitions and look for future additions.

expectations: (n) premeditated disappointments

control: (n) a pleasant illusion granted by the Lord for brief periods of time. It is only claimed to be truly possessed by fools and the insane.
