Wordy Wednesday!

This week's word I love is courtesy of my Mom. It is Platypus.

[plat-i-puhs, -poos]
noun, plural -pus·es, -pi

1. a small, aquatic, egg-laying monotreme, Ornithorhynchusanatinus, of Australia and Tasmania, having webbed feet, a tail like that of a beaver, a sensitive bill resembling that of a duck, and in adult males, venom-injecting spurs on the ankles of the hind limbs used primarily for fighting with other males during the breeding season.

The word I hate is Invariably. People never use it right and it just sounds so stupid! There is a person I dislike quite a bit who uses it CONSTANTLY! Like it makes him sound smart or something. Invariably it makes sound like an idiot!!


1. not variable; not changing or capable of being changed; static or constant.
2. something that is invariable; a constant.

*If you press on the speaker you'll notice the pronunciation is for invariable. I'm thinking it's because invariably isn't a real word, but dictionary.com did have a entry for it. Stupid, stupid word!!
