Word of the Week: Proxy

25 Mar

Proxy (n.): The agency, function, or power of a person authorized to act as a substitute for another

Similar to: Agent, substitute, intermediary, surrogate

Example: Everyone’s always talking about Munchausen by Proxy syndrome; but having just returned from a Dave Matthew’s Band* concert, I’m more interested in having a conversation should be about munchies by proxy.

*I would never willingly attend a Dave Matthew’s Band concert.
