Reading Time: 1 minute


Today’s word of the day is one of my favourite words out there, and I try to drop it into my literature as often as possible. In my opinion, it has gone out of fashion before its time. Enjoy!


n. :  Minor weaknesses or eccentricities in someone’s character.

I don’t think a more British word could exist. And the singular sounds even cuter, foible.
