Cool Word of the Day!

My original word was going to be “curious” (for my son–he wrote a little story for me featuring that word–to be posted in a few, after I scan it in and translate)–but while I was looking up that word, I came across this word:

Curium (noun) (Symbol Cm)

Definition: A metallic synthetic radioactive element.

I love that what it is, has describing words longer than the word itself. And it’s fun to say: Metallic synthetic radioactive element. Say it out loud at a party and sound smart!

Here’s curious too, in case you were…

Curious (adjective)

Definition: Eager to acquire knowledge; Inquisitive: prying; Strange: singular
