Word of the Day: habile

What's "the word I'm thinking of"? Today, it's....

habile [HAB-ihl] (adjective)

Generally able or adroit; handy

Professor Allenby fixed the roof himself, and thought he'd proved "habile" with a hammer and nails. Then the first rains came.


Nice word, but I don't think I'd trust a handyman who said he was "habile with a hammer".
