Datejà Vu

[deyt-zhah voo]

In a sentence: While at dinner with a potential new boyfriend, Rodney heard his date's passive-aggressive comments and felt a sense of datejà vu, as though he hadn't learned from previous experience and was once again courting an insecure man.

 

Thanks to Rodney for this week's word!
