You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

If you’ve ever seen "The Princess Bride” (and I hope you have), you know those wise words belong to the character Inigo Montoya. This bit is almost as well-known as his introductory greeting.

The word under suspicion is “inconceivable.” And Inigo is correct; the character uses the word incorrectly. In this instance, though, I'll forgive the misstep. 'Cause it's hilarious. And I love that movie.

But in real life, errors like that are not as funny. In fact, they make me cry.

Today, though, I'm weeping with joy. Thanks, Copyblogger, for this little gift:
