WOTW: Flibbertigibbet

Flibbertigibbet:  (noun)  a frivolous, flighty, or excessively talkative person
          Origin:  late Middle English: probably imitative or idle chatter
          (definition taken from  New Oxford American Dictionary)

I first met this word during the 2012 A to Z Challenge.  Just recently, we encountered each other again in Steve Hockensmith's Dawn of the Dreadfuls.  I find that I really enjoy this word and could even use it to describe myself occasionally :)
