  • An imaginary interview with an old photo of yourself.

  • An enigmatic figure who still lives in the grainy and color-warped house you grew up in.

  • Someone who may well spend a lot of their day wondering where you are and what you’re doing now, like an old grandma whose kids live far away and don’t call much anymore.

  • Coined in 2012 by John Koenig in The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows, a project, to create a compendium of invented words for every emotion we might all experience but don’t yet have a word for.
