Paromologia (par-o-mo-lo’-gi-a): Conceding an argument, either jestingly and contemptuously, or to prove a more important point.  A synonym for concessio.

Yup, I’m late to yet another weekly meeting–last week there was an accident–two weeks ago there was construction–today it was the fire. Who knows what it’ll be next! Let’s explore using our video conferencing capabilities for three of the four meetings we have each month, and keep one meeting face to face–with a flexible start time. That way, we’ll save money, start most of our meetings on time, and generally, be more productive. What say?
