Word of the Day

Dirigible: Able to be steered.

Puerile: Youthful; juvenile. 2. childishly foolish; immature; silly

What do you get when you combine these two words? You definitely do not get the word ‘toddler.’ Unless, of course, you throw M&Ms into the mix.

Prosaic: commonplace or dull; unimaginative

I know I should probably know this one, and I think I always kind of understood it in context, but it was just about time for me to look it up. Found it in a story about Bob Dylan. And just in case Tasha is reading this, the writer was saying that the only prosaic thing he has ever done is live to be 68. He was not, by any means, calling Dylan boring.
