Don’t mistake turbid for turgid (which means swollen or distended, or over blown, pompous, bombmastic).
Example from my recent six word stories: My heart is turbid, messy, unruly.
How do you see yourself using this word in the next week? I’m trying to use it in my writing for my blog and at my job. As you can imagine, child welfare is often turbid, so I’m sure there will be plenty of chances at work.
