Question of the day....


Why do we say "I saw a pregnant woman"? The word 'pregnant', as per it's original definition, is perhaps the most gender specific word in the english language. Why not say something like...

Her: "I saw a pregnant at the grocery store today... reminded me I need to get a watermelon..."

Weird I know, but not any weirder than Kaleidoscope! Seriously, who's the genius who thought that word up!?

What do you say, guys!? Shall we start a generation that refers to pregnant women as "Pregnants"?? I think we can make it work!

The origin of the word kaleidoscope speaks to the splendid images they make for us. Kaleidoscope finds its roots in the Greek word kalos meaning "beautiful", the Indo-european eidos that means "form", and scope that is Greek for "to see".
