Idiosyncrasy

I like to use this word because we are all unavoidably different. Plus it is a really polite way to say that someone is just plain weird. Eg "He certainly has his idiosyncrasies".

Idiosyncrasy
n : a behavioral attribute that is distinctive and peculiar to an individual [syn: foible, mannerism]

id·i·o·syn·cra·sy (d--sngkr-s)n.
A structural or behavioral trait peculiar to an individual or a group.
A physiological or temperamental peculiarity.
An unusual individual reaction to food or a drug.



Ran home last night. Legs were really sore. Feeling a little niggle in my right achilles. Running home tonight to see how it feels. Hopefully I'll be able to do a light speed session tomorrow.

I actually like one of the words used in the definition of this fav word. Foible-A minor weakness or failing of character!

We all havve our little foibles don't we? Hope the niggle clears up for tomorrow.

Take care of that achilles tendon... also know as the calcaneus tendon because it attaches to the calcaneus bone of the foot... formed by merging of tendons from the following muscles: gastrocnemius, soleus, and plantaris.

Thanks for the study session! :P

Oh, so that means you should stretch your calves... in case you haven't figured that out yet :) No need to thank me, I'm here to help.
