Today’s word is caprice:
1 a : a sudden, impulsive, and seemingly unmotivated notion or action
1 b : a sudden usually unpredictable condition, change, or series of changes
2 : a disposition to do things impulsively
I have to admit that this word hits home a little bit because I suffer from bipolar disorder. As a result of the illness, I tend to be a bit capricious. I have often been accused (rightly) of being impulsive. I’m working on it, though.
I know, not exactly the word caprice, but it’s a variant form! It counts.
