I’m slowly making my way through Paul Bowles’s The Sheltering Sky and have already come across the word “caprice” a couple of times. I’m sure I encountered the definition once, on some English class vocab test or whatnot, but since my mind is as retentive as a sieve due to, er, experimentation of the psychotropic variety, I’ve forgotten more than I done learnt. So in the interest of being servicey (except for those with a healthy vocabulary and the ability to retain knowledge), the definition of caprice:
a. An impulsive change of mind.
b. An inclination to change one’s mind impulsively.
c. A sudden, unpredictable action, change, or series of actions or changes
Gawd, I feel smarter already. Now, where did I leave my keys?
