WHIM: meaning and examples

Good morning, Yesterday we learned the word craving, which means to have a strong, almost uncontrollable desire, to do something. Today we are going to look at a word with a similar meaning. Today's word is: whim It means: to have a sudden feeling that you must have something or that you must do something. It often suggests that what you want is not important. It is common to see this word as part of the expression to do something on a whim. Example 1 Do you like my new shoes? I bought them on a whim, although I probably shouldn't have because they were terribly expensive! Example 2 She painted the living room red on a whim, but now she's not sure if she likes it very much.
