Episode 357: Wacky Word Wednesday #5

Hooray for Wednesday when I get to fool about with another word that has caught my fancy. This time it is a wonderful word, being French in origin and sounding far nicer than the meaning of it is! May I present to you…..

Maladroit. Oh this poor word blunders and bumbles through life, blissfully buggering up everything it touches! It is ham-fisted and heavy-handed, stumbling and lumbering, tripping over anything in its path.

Being ungainly and uncoordinated, it is graceless and gawky, with its butterfingers and two left feet; a piteous sight to behold. A clumsy klutz who is both inept and incompetent….sounds a lot like me on the dancefloor!!

  1. I like the French origins of the word mal- sickness or ill, droit -right. A sickness of the right so probably a left handed person unable to use their right hand for things, maybe for drawing the sword? Only a guess of course but the right hand rules of course.
