The word (and the actual tail wind) probably doesn't stir much emotion from most people. To a bicyclist getting a tailwind is about as good as it gets. bicyclists think and talk about the wind during and after the ride.
When I used to run I used to think about sections with dogs, as a bicyclist I think about sections in terms of the prevailing wind.
I push the wind to work, and coming home let it push me along for 1/2 the way.
So I wish you all a tailwind (in whatever you do) today.
