A.Word.A.Day

I subscribe to a site called A.Word.A.Day, which sends me an English word each weekday.  I figure it's good to try to expand my vocabulary.  Often there are very interesting words.  Recently the word was Lunule, which means

noun:
1. The crescent-shaped whitish area at the base of the fingernail.
2. Any crescent-shaped mark, object, etc.





Did you know that is what the crescent-shaped area of your fingernail is called?  I didn't and thought it was interesting enough to share.

Interesting. I think having them or not indicates a health issue. I'm off to the Google Machine because I only have them on my thumbs.
xx, Carol
