Cool Word of the Day! Special Edition (!)

It’s a two-for-one day! And it’s dedicated to my daughter, so that she will never again get the two words mixed up!

Cataract: (noun)

Has two separate, distinct definitions. The pathological, that most every one knows, Stevie, ahem, I’m looking at you ; )

and then another, regular one, that I was unaware of. See, learn something new everyday!

Definition: Opacity of the lens or capsule of the eye, causing total or partial blindness.

Definition 2: A huge downpour or waterfall.

Interesting.

And this is the special word that Stevie keeps mistaking for the first:

Chloroplast: (noun)

Definition: An organelle present in algae and plant cells that contains chlorophyll and is involved in photosynthesis.

You probably don’t want one of those in your eye!

I love you, my sweetie-fish, ><Ò)ε

Mom (That’s supposed to look like a fish kissing–it’s a stretch–just roll with it!)
