Ennui is that most spiritual of boredoms, felt in the soul. The word is borrowed from the French — a culture who can make malaise even seem like a movement more than just something that happens. I'll give you an example: when I worked in a cubicle I was occasionally bored but when my life became a cubicle I was experiencing ennui. The 2012 BMW M5 seems like a reasonable cure for boredom, but Maximum_Sarge sees something deeper in the lack of a wagon option.
