Expanding your vocabulary

 A few months ago, I came across a delightful meme that claimed "got the morbs" was Victorian slang for a feeling of temporary melancholy.  I looked it up, and it seems legit, so now I'm using this phrase regularly.  

Maybe you're not feeling depressed, but just sort of aimless, joyless, and empty?  Turns out you're not alone, and there's a word for that too: languishing.
