  • An emotion you haven’t felt in years that you might have forgotten completely if your emotional playlist hadn’t been left on shuffle.

  • A feeling whose opening riff tugs on all your other neurons like a dog on a leash waiting for you to open the door.

  • 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.
