Word of the day:

cathartic
adjective
1. emotionally purging

I've been having these dreams almost every night that are very cathartic. Dreams are good because they let you work out the things you need to work out, and say the things you need to say but aren't able to in person.

However, cathartic can also mean:
noun
1. a purging medicine; stimulates evacuation of the bowels.

I never knew that meaning of the word. That is funny! Maybe i should start saying to people when they have an upset stomach.
"Man you just need to have some cathartic!"

I love cathartic, it's really one of my favs. I say it randomly and people look at me like I just said something about gas. Now I know that the noun version really is kind of about gas...
