Brain Candy? Perhaps not

I wholeheartedly admit that I read mystery novels. Many, many mystery novels and almost all of those that I read are written by female authors. One of my current favorite authors is Martha Grimes.

As I was reading along today I ran across a word in The Old Silent that I couldn't define. My eagerness to discover the definition prevents anyone from using the word to describe me...

insouciant (ĭn-sū'sē-ənt, ăN'sū-syäN')
adj.

Marked by blithe unconcern; nonchalant.
