Yesterday, I learned many new words. One of them was mamihlapinatapai (noun), which is "a look shared by two people, each wishing that the other would initiate something they both desire but which neither wants to begin."
In an attempt to use my newly discovered word in a sentence, I came up with this:
Maria has been in mamihlapinatapai with Jose for the last 5 hours during which nothing momentous has happened except that she has become cross-eyed.
I don't think I like mamihlapinatapai after all.
