Friday Vocabulary - Capricious

This weeks vocabulary is actually two words: capricious and caprice. I'm doing two words this time because they are connected.
The first word we will define is caprice because it comes first alphabetically.

Caprice is a whim, a freak, a fancy, or a fantastical goat leap. Basically it's to have a tendency to do things impulsively.

Now capricious, the word I intended on defining. If you are capricious, you are governed by caprice. You are unsteady, changeable, fickle, and fanciful.
God is not capricious, but man is.
Capricious can also mean fantastic or playful. But that meaning is now obsolete.

I think that your siblings can be pretty "capricious", meaning fantastically playful! :)
Love you,
