My horoscope said this today: “Sometimes, the blame game is pointless. It doesn't always help bring about detente.”
Détente? What the heck is détente? So I look it up, I’m ok with definition one, but what’s up with two? Why would you define a word using the word you already don’t know what it means?? I just don’t get it.
Definition of DÉTENTE
1: the relaxation of strained relations or tensions (as between nations); also: a policy promoting this
2: a period of détente
My co-workers response:
Fooled me altogether. I thought it was some french guy, camping, trying to get out of the rain.
"It is pouring....put up de-tente."
