Good morning, WOW lovers! The last WOW (Word of the Week) for 2013 was styptic. Merriam-Webster defines styptic as: tending to contract or bind or tending to check bleeding. Where was this word last fall when I was definitely in need of something to be styptic for all those blood tests I endured???

The first 2014 WOW is stichomythia. Here are my definition guesses for stichomythia:

stichomythia: (sti-kə-ˈmi-thē-ə) 1. a fictitious land in which all things are styptic 2. when “sticking it to the man” is merely a myth 3. the German way to spell mythical sticks

What are your definitions for stichomythia???
