Word of the Day 8/28/14 Malleable

1 million apologies for forgetting to put today's word of the day up! I have family visiting and they leave sometime on Saturday.

Malleable (adjective)
malleable [mal-ee-uh-buh l]


adjective
1. capable of being extended or shaped by hammering or by pressure from rollers.
2. adaptable or tractable: the malleable mind of a child.

Synonyms
2. impressionable, moldable, flexible, pliable.
Antonyms
2. refractory, intractable.

Origin: 1350-1400; Middle English malliable < Medieval Latin malleābilis, equivalent to malle (āre) to hammer (derivative of Latin malleus hammer) + -ābilis -able

Now YOU come up with a sentence (or fic? or graphic?) that best illustrates the word.

1 million thanks for being so malleable! I should have noticed because I cleared out my email hours earlier, but it just didn't click that I hadn't posted an entry until I checked for the weekend.
