Daily Prompt: Inhabit
I like to play with words.

I spell out acronyms to remind me of bigger pictures. I chase down where and how a meaning came to be. And I love a good pun.

Inhabit is a verb that I can have some fun with. It is, of course, “to live in,” and usually refers to a physical place.

It’s derivation is Latin habere “have,” evolving to in + habitere “dwell.”

But I’m familiar with another way to use it.

“In habit.” As in “I’m in [the] habit [of].” Get it? I’m in habit.

Habit is neutral. “A settled or regular tendency or practice, especially one that is hard to give up.”


Don’t we all want the good ones?
