Word of the Day

Monday, March 2, 2009


A student of mine taught me the word epididymis today. I like it the way it rolls off my tongue. It reminds me of those fabulous Mary Poppins' words. Its etymology is also interesting: epi means upon, above and didymous means twins, pair, which is a euphemistic way to refer to the it, if you know what I mean.
