Well, if you were forced on line with your work due to Covid, then I have a new and useful word for you which I made up the other day. I was teaching The Lottery, by Shirley Jackson. To understand the story, it’s important to learn about the biblical references such as stoning and scapegoats- sending a sacrificial goat into the wilderness to bear the collective sins of a community. Since my connectivity crashed in the middle of the lesson, followed shortly after by my student’s page crashing, I told him we were Skypegoats. Enjoy.
