Seen & Heard:

"My husband was trying to get me to jump into a swimming pool and the water was cold. I told him I was feeling trepidatious and in front of 6 people he informed me it was not a word. I explained that it was a form of the word trepidation. He didn't believe me and I wanted to prove him wrong. I was right!" – Summer Trevor
