Thesaurus Thursday: "Finifugal."

Today's word is "finifugal" (adjective, obsolete).  It means fearful of or hating endings, or describes one who tries to prolong stories or relationships in order to delay their endings.

She was a finifugal Harry Potter reader, taking a month to finish Deathly Hallows because she didn't want to stop pretending that she too went to Hogwarts. (I read it the day I bought it and rather regret that :-/.  I still miss it.)

... After all this time?
