You know when you want to use a word, and you know what it means, but you just can't think of the word you want? That happened to me today. I had a midterm exam in Politics of Religion, and I was writing an essay on the Israeli political system. I couldn't think of the word I wanted (I still can't, sadly), and I sat there for five minutes, thinking, 'Okay, I know the word. So what is it?'
Eventually, I just used 'cooperation'. It was the closest synonym I could think of--and even then, it wasn't exact. *sigh*
EDIT: Fucking hell. I had to go to thesaurus.com to find the word I wanted. It's been bugging me for the past two hours.
The word I wanted was 'compromise'. *headdesk* Damn, I feel stupid.
