Reduced to Mush ... at My Feet!

Today's Word "friable"

friable \FRY-uh-buhl\ (adjective) - Easily crumbled, pulverized, or reduced to powder.

"The house was practically falling apart around him, the crackling and friable walls unable to withstand the extreme winds of the storm."

Friable comes from Latin friabilis, from friare, "to rub, break, or crumble into small pieces."
