Fun with words Friday! Fey

Fey was a dictionary.com word of the day this week (I have the App on my iPod and it’s awesome!).  As we already established earlier this week, I used to be quite fond of fairies, so I only knew of fey as being another word for fairies.  Well, apparently, it means much more than that…
