This week’s word of the week is yen. Sure, Yen is the Japanese currency, but that’s not what I’m talking about here. Actually, yen also means to have a strong urge or desire. As an example, one might say “I yen to earn much Yen.”
I first heard the word yen watching episode 1×03 “Kill Me Now” of Gilmore girls. Rory was forced to take a sport at school, and so she chose to have her grandfather teach her how to golf. During their game, Rory mentioned having a yen for travel, specifically to visit the city of Fez.
