Obscure Latin Word of the Week

This week's word: essedarius m -i
a fighter in a British or Gallic war-chariot.

How to use this word in daily life:

1. As a pick-up line - "Baby are you an essedarius? Because you just slayed my heart like a British or Gallic warrior."

2. At a sporting event - "Ah come on! A blind-folded essedarius could have made that play!"

3. At a job interview - "I'm a team player. It takes more than one essedarius to drive back a Roman legion."
