Frangible

I saw this word the other day and couldn’t help but like it.

frangible \FRAN-juh-buhl\, adjective:   Capable of being broken; brittle; fragile; easily broken.

It reminds me of fraggle rock and tangibly fragile smushed together (carefully though, so as not to break) as one.  It seems obvious how someone came up with it.  Frangible.  My cousin had a baby boy on Monday night; 21 inches long, 7 pounds 10 ounces.  His name is Harry Bailey Begg and he is very frangible.

Other things that are frangible: Humpty Dumpty, the American economy, our hearts.

The opposite of frangible (ie: things that cannot be broken): my dog Hank the Tank, bad habits, jello.

That’s all for today.  This blog was brought to you by the letter F for Frangible.
