Mitigate: To change the baby's diaper. Usually after the baby has pooped. E.G.: we are at a nice resturaunt with our friends and Blanket smells bad. I say, "I need to go mitigate," and grab the baby and diaper bag.
The fan in our bedroom has 3 speeds: Token, On, and Turbo. I hate having the fan on when I go to sleep, and B.A.R. needs it 8 months of the year. He wants Turbo, I want off. I usually settle for Token (my token of compromise). B.A.R. says that it isn't really on until On, and that Turbo is the only thing that really moves a lot of air. That may be, but any amount of air movement is too much for me.
