I don’t know why, but for some reason I always thought “nubile” meant “nude.” As a former English major, I’m embarrassed to say that I thought this up until today, when I read a sentence in a book that went something like this:
“Sally was a nubile woman eagerly waiting for Tom to pull his shit together and pop the question.”
I stared at that sentence for longer than I want to admit, trying to figure out why Sally was naked and begging for an engagement ring, before I admitted defeat and googled what nubile actually meant. LOL. At least the sentence makes sense now!
Any words that you totally messed up the definition for in your brain?! I can’t be alone!
