So about the new name…

I've gotten a couple of questions about my new blog name so I thought I’d take a second to explain it.  For those of you who have seen the movie Pirates of the Caribbean I ask you to remember the quote, “I'm disinclined to acquiesce to your request.”  

Maybe you heard it and didn't know what it meant, that’s what I did, but thanks to my preternatural need to know all the words, I looked it up.  According to Merriam-Webster online, acquiesce means, “to accept, comply, or submit tacitly or passively.”  For example, they demanded that she become an adult, and she acquiesced.   

Which is just a perfect segue into the new name.  Adultquiescence.  As in my accepting, complying, or submitting to adulthood tacitly or passively. 

Isn't it fun to learn things?
