Blowing our own horn

I think I’m sick of the Olympics already. All this focus on “medalling” and tallying what country is “ahead”, all these fanfarons fanfaronading… it’s just no fun. It’s not nearly as fun as saying the word

which is very fun indeed. Fanfaronade! Fanfaronade! I might just keep saying that instead of watching the Olympics. Oh, what does it mean? It means a blustering empty boast, although sometimes it just literally means a trumpety sort of fanfare. Toot!
