Day 1386: Oh so peccable!

AllStar, photo, collage & digital

I have always loved words.
I get Wordsmith <> daily.
It's a free app that delivers a word to me daily & free.
I kid myself that I have a pretty good vocabulary ...
Wordsmith surprises me almost daily with the gift of a new word!
Some just hit home, like Tuesday's ...

A.Word.A.Day with Anu Garg


adjective: Imperfect; flawed; capable of sinning.

From Latin peccare (to err or sin). Ultimately from the Indo-European root ped- (foot), which also gave us pedal, podium, octopus, impeach, peccavi, and peccadillo (alluding to a stumble or fall). Earliest documented use: 1604.

“We picked up a Peugeot 406 automatic at Toulouse airport. I approached the glossy woman at the airport desk and announced in extremely peccable French: ‘The car is here, brothel-owning lady, for us.’”Mark Dapin; Lost in France; The Times (London, UK); Aug 21, 2004.

The higher up you go, the more mistakes you are allowed. Right at the top, if you make enough of them, it's considered to be your style. -Fred Astaire, dancer, actor, singer, musician, and choreographer (10 May 1899-1987)

TMI? I think it's cool!
