V is for Vagarious



It's the last full week of the A to Z Challenge.  We're almost there!

I have another cool vocabulary word for you.

Today's word is: VAGARIOUS

Vagarious is defined as erratic and unpredictable in behavior and direction.

This word is rare in its usage, though I can't quite understand why.  I mean, we can all think of someone or something that fits this description, right?

Reasons to know this word:
-You now know how to describe the drunken behaviors of your friends or family members.  Or your own, perhaps.
-It's kind of cool to look at the connections between this word and more commonly used ones such as vagary or vagrant.  You can hear how similar they sound and see the similarities between meanings.  The evolution of language is a neat thing indeed.

  2. That sounds like a word that should be more in use.
