Word Nerd: Capricious

capricious definition Word Nerd via LaWhimsy.pngCapricious seems quite the fitting word for March, what with it’s fickle, ever changing weather and unpredictable elemental switches. Even time is capricious since time-change takes place, causing what I consider to be an erratic upheaval (despite it’s supposed “predictable” format). Capriciousness has both positive and negative connotations, though the negative is often the focal point, since human nature tends to prefer a much more stable, predictable flow. The occasional capricious decision and impulsive move is a welcome deviation, however. To be a bit capricious keeps you on your toes and adds spice to life.
