Word of the Day
Quixotic
(adjective) — being romantic with no regard for practicality; having rash, lofty, romantic, chivalrous ideals to the extreme; being enamored or obsessed with the romance of doing noble deeds (etymology: from Don Quixote)

Word in a Sentence: In the Choices fantasy trilogy from Sandy Lender, Lord Jamieson Drake wasn't so concerned about noble deeds, but was quixotic in his other actions when he returned from sea to marry the love of his life, Vertigo, in the city of Kharole some sixteen years before the Choices Meant for Gods story begins.
