I was having a look at at previous words of the day and found this one and liked the example that they gave of the word.

fallible \FAL-uh-bul\, adjective:
1. Liable to make a mistake.
2. Liable to be inaccurate or erroneous.

But human beings are fallible. We know we all make mistakes.-- Robert S. McNamara, "et al.", Argument Without End

I like the part - Argument without End. It is so true when you think about it.

Othere words that I like are:

virago \vuh-RAH-go; vuh-RAY-go\, noun:
1. A woman of extraordinary stature, strength, and courage.
2. A woman regarded as loud, scolding, ill-tempered, quarrelsome, or overbearing.

Sounds like me some days

comestible \kuh-MES-tuh-buhl\, adjective:
1. Suitable to be eaten; edible.

1. Something suitable to be eaten; food.

There are some strange words in our language.

Till next time
