Word o’ the day: erstwhile

Okay, I think I need to start a Word o’ the day thing, for those days when I find myself writing a sentence and not knowing the meaning of the word(s) I just wrote. I then fire up Word, if I’m not in it, type the word, right click it, and select look-up for a definition…as I just did with erstwhile. 99% of the time, I’ve used it properly. Odd, no?

Oh, don’t know what erstwile means? Look it up!

About Me

My photo
This is me and one of my two cats. His name is Cougar, and he’s an F1 Chausie. A chausie is a new breed of cat under development. Chausies are the result of a cross between a domestic cat (in Cougar’s case, a Bengal) and a jungle cat (Felis Chaus). Cougar’s mom is 8 pounds and his father is a 30-pound jungle cat. He’s about 16 pounds, super intelligent, spirited, and toilet trained. A writer without a cat (or two) is not to be trusted.
