Today, you are a member of … *werg

lethargy walton ford not walton ford

Weirdly, Members, “handiwork,” “irk,” and lethargy all stem from the proto-indo-european root *werg, meaning to do.  It seems strange that words for productivity, hassle preventing productivity and the lack of productivity have a common denominator, but such is the way of language.  Roots grow into varied and rhizomatic formations that are intertwined yet competing.  So this week members, no matter if you mode is productivity-evident, productivity-antagonistic, or productivity-anathema, know you are only a couple of linguistic turns from further and varied constructions, so enjoy as much as you can from pre-altered states.
