Word of the Day 01/28/17 Froideur

Froideur (noun)
froideur [frwa-dœr]


noun, French.
1. an attitude of haughty aloofness; cold superiority.



Origin: Froideur means “coldness” in French and is formed from the adjective froid “cold” (from the Latin adjective frigidus). The French suffix -eur (from the Latin suffix -or) is also used in English loanwords from French, e.g., entrepreneur, voyeur. The word entered English in the 18th century.

Now YOU come up with a sentence (or fic? or graphic?) that best illustrates the word.
