Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious

Most of us recognize the word from the Disney Movie Mary Poppins. According to the film, it is defined as "something to say when you have nothing to say".
The roots of the word have been defined as follows: 
  • Super- "above"
  • Cali- "beauty"
  • Fragilistic- "delicate"
  • Expiali- "to atone"
  • Docious- "educable"
Altogether, it is roughly translated:
"Atoning for educability through delicate beauty." 
I like it and that is why I chose it for the name of my blog, plus its fun to say :)

Enjoy!
