  1. I've heard that word before. Now I can't wait to use it. Hmmm, how to casually work it into conversation....

    1. I believe we could say: "the week is at its point of moiety" - being that it's Wednesday. Thanks, Sara!

  2. Great word. I like the way you used it because I was unsure of how it would go into a sentence.

    1. It appears that the word originated in England around 1400-1450. Its roots are Latin. Thanks, Martin!
